This time of year is beautiful at Durham Central Park. The grass is green, the sunlight is special and the gardens are full of vibrant color. The landscaping hasn’t always been this beautiful but now it is more the norm because of several individuals, businesses and organizations who have ‘adopted’ specific areas in the park as well as the monthly volunteer days that happen throughout the year.
Each DCP area adoption is different and has its own story. What we informally call the ‘Prudential Garden’ is a great example of how things happen around the Park. It started as a way to commemorate the loss of a friend and has become a showcase garden as well as an ongoing teambuilding project for a community minded business.
