So I took the reader's advice and took my kids there this week. We had a great time.
There is a lot of shade at this small park and playground. You'll find a couple of play sets, swings and some small bouncy rides for preschoolers. I really liked the wide open areas with lots of trees and paved trail that loops around the park. Kids were having a great time riding their bikes and scooters around it.
Rockwood Park is at 2310 Whitley Dr. in Durham. Watch the video for a closer look at the park.
