Basketball Programs

Durham Parks and Recreation (DPR) offers a variety of basketball programs including:

Basketball Community Open Play Days

DPR offers free Community Open Play Days on designated outdoor basketball courts. The Community Open Play is designed to give free basketball court access to all individuals and families. Courts are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and we ask that you limit play to 1 hour while others are waiting. Lights will be on an automatic schedule or they can be turned on by a push button/switch. 

Basketball Community Open Play Days will be offered at the following parks:

  • Bethesda Park
  • Sherwood Park
  • Southern Boundaries Park
  • Morreene Road Park

Visit our ActiveNet calendar for the current availability and light schedules.
