Durham Parks and Recreation offers a wide variety of programs for teens all across the city. Our recreation centers create individualized programming and activities with teens in mind. From having Teen Pool Party's to Open Gym Basketball to Off Site Field Trips, we've got something for everyone to enjoy.
