Tennis courts were redone and looks good. Tennis courts is really all that is here.

Tennis courts were very nice, but the facilities left something to be desired.

My favorite place to play tennis despite the pickle ball lines being the same color as the service lines.

Shaded woods in a part of Durham lacking in city park facilities. Primary draw is tennis courts. The small playground is trying for some type of natural play. For some reason the pond is fenced off, although still filled with trash.

With six tennis courts (hard courts), Garrett Road Park is a great public park for tennis folks. Although there is a parking lot, it's pretty small, so if everyone is playing doubles, it can be a tight fit. The courts are nice, and there's a backboard on one court if you're playing solo. They're popular courts, with USTA teams reserving courts for league play, so it may be hard to find a court at peak times.

If you love tennis than this is the place for you! About 90% of this park is taken up by endless tennis courts because the demand for tennis, as we all know, is that intense. If you're in the mood for a nice afternoon stroll on the walking path, then you're in luck. This walking path stretches a whopping 32nd of a mile and dead ends right into traffic. Yes sir! If you make it across the several lanes of traffic, you can continue onto a sidewalk and keep walking as far as you want! The fun doesn't stop there. This park has a fully stocked pond that you can't fish in or even approach. There is a small but nice little play area for the kids that even has a creepy guy that lives in a tent just a few feet away. If nature calls, do not worry because this park as nice restrooms that are always locked. You can count on that! Make sure you bring the whole family and make a day of it. You will not be disappointed!

Fairly small park. Tennis courts and a paltry playground. There are better laces but this one tends to be empty if you're looking for some outdoor solitude.

It’s a nice park with some climbing and jungle gym type equipment. It was full of trash when I went which was disappointing.

The food here is always delicious. I've eaten everything on the menu and cannot recommend it more highly. Don't forget to get the house dressing on your salad!

Small,but nice park tucked away across from the school on Garrett Road,near Garrett & Hope Valley. It is easy to miss,just look for the green & blue park sign as you turn from Hope Valley on tk Garrett. There are a few tennis courts that are always full & I think a "playground " down a small trail. Restrooms are available. I practice flying my drone there,if it's not too crowded. Will try to post drone photo of park...

I like to come here to play pickle ball with my mom. It does get crowded when the weather is nice and sun is shining in the afternoons but so far I have been able to get a court most times I go.

If the bathrooms are ever finished, this Park might be decent.

There are 6 courts here which are usually not full. I’ve come after work around 6pm and also on the weekends.

They have a playground, tennis courts, a covered picnic area and restrooms. There are other parks with more activities for kids to do.
