It's a nice ooen and spacious park. There's a big field, a pool, and tennis court. Just be careful with the slides. There's one that has a bolt messing (the slide facing the woods, see pic below).

Forest Hills Park is one of Durham's crown jewels. The park was donated to the city back in the 1930s. It has a Sprayground water park feature. Lots of covered picnic area. The playground structure is pretty unique. There's lots of accessible parking. The restrooms are always clean. The only drawback to the park is that sometimes there are drainage issues after rains.

Really good park. Beautiful wide open play spaces in the sun. There's a pool and tennis courts, and children's play area. Sunny field of flowers in the spring is lovely. Wish people weren't so trashy with litter and there was someone there to take care of that.

The splash pad was off! It's August and it's hot so why was it off? There were a ton of kids including mine that were so disappointed.

DPR did an excellent job by choosing JAZZ music for this venue. Awesome music to dance the SALSA!

I've been coming to this park since I was a kid. It's beloved in the south durham community.

seems like an overall nice park, well located. I never go there to play tennis because there are only four courts and they’re often booked up for clinics. Also, when I’ve been there, the bathrooms have been locked, so not sure if you should count on there being bathrooms if you go

Very serene and beautiful to walk around or day dream under a gorgeous tree...

Fun temporary Disc Golf course. Only there a couple times a year, take advantage when it is around.
