Mt. Merrill in Durham Central Park

Recently constructed in December 2014 from a kickstarter campaign, this playground is part of Durham Central Park.  It’s just across the road from the Durham Farmers’ Market and adjacent to a skateboarding park for older kids and teens.

The structure features two slides, rock climbing, two sun shades, swirling pathway to the top, and mini amphitheater.

Great for a visit if you are driving to Durham for shopping, dining or entertainment at DPAC or the Durham Bulls Stadium which are just a few minutes away.

Anticipate crowds during art walks, Farmers’ Market, concerts and other special events.
