This park is nice. It has two play structures, one for older kids and the other for younger kids. It has two bucket swings and two regular swings. The play area is surrounded by a wooden fence and there are benches on each side. The ground is partially padded and the rest is concrete. There is a bathroom and water fountain within walking distance. There are trails and tennis courts. There are lots of trees so it can be shaded depending on where the sun is. There’s a lot of parking surrounding the park also.

Seems like a lovely park. There's a playground, lots of tennis courts, a baseball field, and some restrooms. The rest is just peaceful hiking trails. The main one is paved.

No complaints really, courts are well maintained and the bathrooms have been available every time I’ve been there. I’m usually there for league play so it might be a frustrating place to try to hop on a court if you’re not there as a part of league play, not sure

Great quality brand new hard surface tennis courts. In the summer it’s a nice and cool oasis away from the heat of the city - because the courts are tucked nicely in the woods, the temperature is a couple of degrees cooler, which makes a big difference on hot and humid NC summer days.

Best park in Durham. Shhh...dont't tell anyone! (That means you! Seriously, only tell your cool friends who like quiet spaces and leisurely walks with well-heeled-dogs and infants. And tennis players. And baseball people. Aww...Just don't litter, K?)

Courts have been refined and are nice. Kids can play while you play tennis. Lighting needs to be upgraded.

Nice little park and playground area in a wooded area. Has a normal basic playground and little second playground for one-year-olds, but the rubber turf was the coolest! They actually had the NAME of the park written in the ground of the playground! Never seen that at any park before, and I’ve taken my son to 175 different playgrounds all total now. They also have some trails back in the woods and picnic tables. A fun playground for little kids…

An ok spot. Has clean bathrooms, tennis courts baseball field. Play equipment and ground could use some updating. There always seems to be random cars with people just hanging out in so that part is a bit shady. It's connected to the greenway which I guess is nice. It's rarely populated so with the random visitors coming and just parking, maybe taking a lunch break, I don't feel as safe as I do at others.

Small private park, very clean surroundings. The children rides and activities were in the center of everything so easily watched.I would go there again and tell a friend.

There are baseball fields here. In the center area is a playground that's good for toddlers and young children, except it's on a court surface, so it's not soft and can get hot. There are swings too. Decent, if you're nearby, but there are better playgrounds within a 5 minute drive.
