Nice park, with lots of trees. Feels a bit like a walk in the woods.

Not a big park but nice enough. A small playground, a picnic shelter, a few other picnic tables, and a small walking path through the park.

Nice, peaceful playground with lots of shade. This park is beautiful and very well kept up. Only drawbacks are that the restroom leaves something to be desired and there is limited parking (although I haven't typically found this to be a problem.)

Best playground for hot summer days. Large canopy of trees provide lots of shade. Also a nice paved path circles the playground for scooters and bikes. Bathroom available but it is a little rustic. No stall in men's room

A nice little community park with a short trail and playground. (Trail does often getting standing water on it after it rains, just as an FYI.)

Tucked away, quiet, has a playground and a shelter. Nice space, but grass is sparse in some areas, so it is very muddy post-rain. The parking lot is small, so not ideal for large gatherings. Great for families and pets.

Rockwood is definitely one of the hidden gems of Durham. It's a nice well kept small loop trail with a playground, a few places for a picnic, and a basketball court.

Beautiful park on a dead end street in a lovely neighborhood! Huge trees- restrooms- swings and slides for the kids in a separate area. Grills and benches. Covered picnic area with benches and roof toward the back of the park. Very nice!

Nice place to walk and for kids to run around. A little muddy and not well lit

I wish I’d taken more pictures to be able to post here. They’ve gotten new equipment for the park and we had such a great time! There are fun swings that let two people swing at once, a bigger and smaller playground set, and a teeter totter. The only thing we don’t love is the wood chip covering, but we’ll for sure go back. The trees so provide some shade but we were there on a cloudy day so I can’t attest to how sunny it’d be.

Terrific park! Has walking trails and a super playground with two sets of climbing structures- one for kids around 4 and up, the other for younger ones. There’s a large seesaw and many swings. Well maintained with doggie poop bags and trash cans.

Quiet tucked away park with a fair amount of trees and shade of strolling or for a picnic. Has playground equipment and plenty of area for kids to run. Parking is very limited down a dead end street.
