Cute little community park. Walked through during the hemp market. Nice galleries along the main road.

A park with no swings! That gets 5 stars from me by itself, but the actual park is really cool - climbing, sliding, exploring, there is a lot to keep your kids active and using energy.

It's a wonderful space for the community to come together. I wish there were more movies in the park!

The farmers market is the greatest place for your family. We play bluegrass there occasionally and the best part is watching the kids sing and dance along.

Not a lot for smaller children to do, but the area is well kept and has a nice atmosphere.

A wonderful green space to have picnics. There's usually free summer music with food trucks. A nice playground across the street for the kids. A wonderful park

Super nice people. I recommend checking out all the booths first for what you need/want to make sure you get the best product and prices. Well organized event.

This proves to be a wonderful stop for catching up with friends while enjoying local cuisine take away. I really liked the aesthetic of the rock landscape with slides built in, almost made me wish my kids had come with. I can't speak to the serenity once COVID has been tamed, but during my visit it was a pleasant mix of calm and activity

Beautiful area for farmers market. In age of covid very well orchestrated one way shopping and the park itself is beautiful and ideal for kids with a large playground.

A Taste of Soul NC: Ultimate Cookout Experience...Food from some of the best food trucks in the Triangle. The photos show the Naan Chicken Wrap from CockadoodleMoo food truck. It was quite filling and delicious. The fried Brussel Sprouts we're also pretty tasty. The Fried Fish, collards and yams were definitely home style from the Let's Eat Home Style food truck.

This is not much of a park. Only a couple of slides, some animals to climb on, and a play hill. My kids were entertained for a while, longer than I thought. There is also a skateboard park at the top of the hill which is cool. I'm sure it is a fun place when a concert is going on right across the street at the outdoor venue. There is a big field there by the concert venue. If you are already here for a concert or event, this park is fine. But unless you are a skateboarder, don't make a special trip.

Love the Farmers Market and Food Trucks. Love the concerts (When they're free OR reasonably priced). A nice green space and community space in the city.

Nice little venue in downtown Durham close to the West Morgan parking deck so parking is a breeze. Small open grassy area for seating (bring your own camp chairs) as well as small covered area across the street. Park has a playground with 2 slides and at the top of the hill, a skateboarding park.

We went when it was completely empty aside from a few teens skating around, because of that, the park felt very small and lonely, with not much to do. They did have some cool features like the block building section and a tiny playground. Hopefully I can come back when there is something going on and experience what everyone experiences here.

I love the cool vibe of the farmer's market in Durham, the vendors, food trucks & live music all lend themselves to a 60s feel which is when I grew up. Bell bottoms and crop tops, fringe and tie dye are all back in style. I love being able to buy fresh food grown locally.

We have been to Central Park several times to go to the Farmers Market as well as events there as well. We have never been during the week, but on the weekend there are a couple of large parking lots that are available. There is some construction going on, but its really not bad finding a spot to park.

Awesome upgrade to the town. I've been enjoying the fresh herbs for years in my dishes. Also collected some catnip for my daughters kitty's. Thanks Durham.

Nice location! I love how downtown Durham has changed since I was child! Some change is good change! I enjoyed Black August in the Park and the Farmers Market is always a plus!

Good food and music in the park. Today's event needed more activities for children. Parking always an issue.

This is a cool area of Downtown Durham! Lots of events are held here from time to time. If you are visiting the Durham area and want to do something fun be sure to check their website to see what events (food truck rodeos, etc) might be going down during your visit. Concerts are often held here as well. This area is super up and coming and there is alot of great things to do around the DC Park.
