I really appreciated the kids events at the park. My kids are now grown but I am still able to enjoy the park ... tennis courts especially.

Seems pleasant and has good parking. Only used the fields. Only see families here not a hangout or anything. Pool looks nice but we have never used it.

The Forest Hills Park in a community of diverse cultures. You'll find Ultimate Frisbee, soccer and tennis going on. There are large fields to play in. The tennis courts are just resurfaced and nice.

This is a great neighborhood park for children of all ages. It features interactive water play which the younger ones love. It does get kind of crowded which I could do without, so we go in the morning especially in the summer.

This park opened in 1938 and is in one of Durham's old money neighborhood's Forest Hills. While the park is showing its age it is kept up pretty well except for the pool which had green water in it (yuck!). Would have rated it 4...More

I remember going to Forest Hills Park for day camp back in the 1970s. It was a glorious park back then. Huge oak trees, a great pool, and a stream winding through the park. These days, the banks of the stream have been allowed to...More
