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

Always family and pet friendly... Never have a reason to complain.

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.

So many fun events downtown. Kids love the playground. We especially enjoy the farmers market!

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.

Very nice location I was there doing the Seafood festival I highly recommend. The variety of food trucks was in no shortage. It was wonderful!

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.
