  • This area is across from the Durham Bulls stadium so you only have to park once. It is mainly office type businesses but very nice to eat outside. The water that runs through is very relaxing.

  • Very nice Historic walkway with a few restaurants. The waterfalls along the path are super nice especially on a warm sunny day! There isn't much to do here except a few restaurants, it says there is retail shopping, but there isn't. We asked and there is 1 store, so if you are planning to shop that will not happen here. The old buildings are well preserved and nicely done. It took about 20 minutes to walk it. Other than walking and bit to eat there isn't anything to really do here.
  • Absolutely love this campus! The water views are amazing(better at night). I can literally sit her for hours listening to the flowing water and watching the birds 🐦 play around. There are some restaurants located on campus, so if you get hungry you can eat.
  • Fun beautiful place to walk around with your kids/family. Decorated for Christmas with lots of cute photo ops. We spent a couple hours walking around with our kids, they played on lawn, and we walked over and saw where the Durham bulls play. Free parking at the parking garage on the weekend.
  • It was a great time to go out and sit down at the creekside with a drink and just enjoy the place. And with all the shops nearby it is a great place to get something to eat. There are also some lovely flowers too. 10/10 would go back again!
  • Great place to walk around if you are in Durham. The water feature is very calming to just sit by when you need to have one of those relaxing days. Cute little restaurants and shops make it a good place to spend some time!
