Parks & Gardens

Wake up and smell the roses, y’all. Durham is beautiful.

Overflowing with lush plants, fascinating species, and beautiful landscapes, Durham's public gardens are areas to be cherished and admired. Don't miss the colorful beauty on display at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens, one of the finest examples of public gardens in the country, offering free admission to its expansive grounds. Durham is also home to rose cultures, educational gardens, and more, well within walking and biking distance from city center.

In a testament to our passion for our sense of place, Durham has gone above and beyond to protect and preserve our green space, even at our urban center. American Tobacco concerts on the lawn in the summer months, free Friday concerts at Durham Central Park, and dozens of neighborhood parks. our community is distinctly aware of the implications of an environmentally conscious destination all can enjoy.
