Amazing community park. Toys. Colorful play structures. Shade from lovely trees. Plenty of benches. Safely fenced. Close to the freeway.

This is the best playground in Durham. It has something for kids of all ages. Shaded which is always a plus, has picnic area, and bonus that it's completely fenced it. Love spending a few hours here.
Also has a community library!

One of Durham's only mostly shaded parks! No burning tush from a hot slide. Lots of picnic tables and a stage for the kids to play or perform on. Great neighborhood park in a great neighborhood!

This is one of the most shaded parks in Durham. It has a nice sized play structure with multiple sized slides and monkey bars. There are swings for big and little kids. There’s a stage area near the back. A bus for kids to play pretend. There are benches and picnic tables. The whole park is fenced in with a woodchuck surface. The only drawbacks are that the parking is street parking in a residential area so it’s limited. There is also not a bathroom so take potty breaks before you go.

This is a beautiful peaceful Park just a block or two off of the beaten path and my children absolutely love it there's a conglomerate of swings push cars slides and obstacle courses. There is even a small stage. Birch Park is the example of planning when people care about the children who are going to play there unlike another favorite Durham Central Park this part has plenty of tree cover to Shield the slides from the hot sun of Summer. There are an abundance of benches so you can still be close to your children near the many different stations of play.

Burch Avenue Park is adorable. It isn't huge, but I think it's meant to be a smaller neighborhood playground. It has a great variety of equipment for the kids and even just some green areas; plenty of benches and picnic tables for seating.
It has lots of shade; but not so much that the sun is blocked.
It's our first time here, but I'm sure they're going to ask to come back again soon!
Btw: no bathrooms. That's my only quip.
