Visit the Park
Features & Attractions
The park offers numerous benches, tables and sculptures to enjoy—most of them donated (see a list of donated features).
“The five acres of Durham Central Park—the setting for the farmers market, concerts, movies, food truck rodeos, weddings and simply being—are as close to sacred as a public space can be.”
—IndyWeek, June 2015
