Oakwood Park near downtown Durham got a major overhaul in 2013. The community, including local kids, was behind the design.
This is a small park at the corner of Holloway Street and Oakwood Avenue. You'll find a pretend bulldozer with a small slide for the younger kids. The larger play set boasts two slides, a variety of ways to climb and a balance beam with pieces that are designed to wobble a bit. Playground Review: Oakwood Park
