Mission: Providing Space for Community.
Durham Central Park is a place filled with natural beauty and man-made wonders. Yet, in a way, it is also a blank canvas—an empty stage ready to be the setting for your story. Our mission is providing space for community, which means a number of things including:
Continuing to maintain and improve an already amazing urban park;
Working hard to ensure that the park is accessible to everyone;
Hosting enjoyable, free events to enliven the park and enrich the community;
Offering an affordable and attractive venue in the heart of downtown; and
Safeguarding a place for people to gather in celebration or rally around a shared belief, meet up with friends or just be alone for a moment, appreciate public art or simply play in nature—a place for Durham to be Durham.
