Located on an old farm with a working grist mill (operates in the summer months on Saturday). The old farm house is open on weekends. A photographic museum is located in one of the out buildings. The park has numerous trails along the Eno River and are accessible year round. Park opens at 8 am and this is the time to go as you usually have it to yourself.
The only downside is with the infrastructure maintenance. The bridge over the mill pond has needed repairs for several years, mind the posts at either end of the bridge as they are very loose, particularly at end nearest the river also very big step at the end of the bridge. The bridge near the river weir really needs to be re planked. The gravel road gets very rutted after the spring rains.
We have been enjoying this park since our move to Durham over 12 years ago. We go 4 or 5 times a month.
When in Durham do this.
