  • Nice park that’s a few acres in space. Stuff for all ages and nicely kept. Believe they do live music in summer.  more »

  • We enjoyed the park, it was a nice walk and break from walking the concrete jungle. Wasn’t any activities going on while we were in town, but I can see it being quite the place for events.  more »
  • Very nice location I was there doing the Seafood festival I highly recommend. The variety of food trucks was in no shortage. It was wonderful!
  • I love the cool vibe of the farmer's market in Durham, the vendors, food trucks & live music all lend themselves to a 60s feel which is when I grew up. Bell bottoms and crop tops, fringe and tie dye are all back in style. I love being able to buy fresh food grown locally.
  • Nice location! I love how downtown Durham has changed since I was child! Some change is good change! I enjoyed Black August in the Park and the Farmers Market is always a plus!
  • This is a cool area of Downtown Durham! Lots of events are held here from time to time. If you are visiting the Durham area and want to do something fun be sure to check their website to see what events (food truck rodeos, etc) might be going down during your visit. Concerts are often held here as well. This area is super up and coming and there is alot of great things to do around the DC Park.
  • Good food and music in the park. Today's event needed more activities for children. Parking always an issue.
