The City’s Urban Forestry Unit has identified two Elm Trees within Bay-Hargrove Park that are suffering from decay and will need to be removed. The trees have been evaluated and placed in the queue for removal as soon as possible pending weather conditions and existing service requests. We will make every effort to provide a timeline, but due to weather and schedules, we are not currently able to provide an exact date for removal. During the removal of the trees, the park may be required to close for 1-2 days.
Piney Wood Park
Lights at the softball field, picnic shelter, and outside of the restrooms are currently not working. The lighting panel will be fixed as soon as possible.
The restrooms at Sherwood Park are currently closed for repairs.
American Tobacco Trail (ATT)
Durham Parks and Recreation (DPR) is closing a small gravel parking lot on the American Tobacco Trail (ATT) on Fayetteville Street near Antler Point Drive. This Summer, DPR will open a new trailhead parking lot on the ATT adjacent to C.M. Herndon Park. Trailhead parking and restroom facilities are currently available at C.M. Herndon Park and Solite Park. Working with private groups, DPR has developed bike maintenance stations at the American Tobacco Campus Trailhead, Solite Park, and the Herndon Park. DPR will also be developing a slope control project near the downtown area and will keep the public informed of closures and progress.
