Durham Central Park
is a five-acre urban park established in 2001 with an emphasis on the arts. The park showcases art by local artists including statues and sculptures. The area also features a butterfly garden, nature trails, open areas for picnics, a playground, and The Pavilion at Central Park. The Pavilion
is home to the Durham Farmer's Market and is available to rent for private parties. In addition, Preservation Durham conducts free walking tours
