There are many ways to support the park including donations, volunteering, corporate sponsorship and even hosting a party!


Everything you see at the park including climbing structures, picnic tables, gardens, benches, etc. happens because you donate your money and time to DCP! Please consider a generous donation today so we can keep DCP the most vibrant park in Durham! Learn more.

Most of the work that gets done at DCP is done by community volunteers. If you’d like to help consider joining us for our monthly Volunteer Work Day and/or consider adopting a part of the park to maintain. There are also opportunities for volunteering at events at the park. Learn more.



DCP, Inc offers sponsorship opportunities in two forms—event sponsorship and adoptable areas. If you are interested in either of these sponsorship opportunities, you can learn more or contact us about sponsorship.

Host a Meal from the Market

Every year, we have a series of Meals from the Market to raise money for the park. These fun dinner parties are a great way to support the park and meet interesting people. Not up for hosting, you can, of course, just attend them as well.
