GREETINGS

F R O M D U R H A M PA R K S & R E C R E AT I O N ' S D I R E C T O R Community engagement matters now more than ever, and one of our most valuable resources here in the City of Durham is our youth and teens. It’s for this reason that Durham Parks and Recreation (DPR) staff are constantly meeting with teens and leaders of the community to listen and obtain feedback on ways we can improve and implement new programs aimed at increasing the number of youth and teens we serve. We have focused on increasing the number of teen programs this year with activities such as Teen Night, Teen Open Gym, Night Flight, dance and modeling, trips to sporting events, Campus to Campus Tours, Leadership Conferences, and Open Computer Lab to name a few. As a bonus, the majority of these teen programs are offered for free! Summer means school is out and play is in session, and with our extended hours of operations and expanded summer programs we can provide extra opportunities for enrichment. During the summer months, look for a variety of unique classes and activities. Take advantage of our newly updated Edison Johnson Aquatic Center. With three outdoor pools and two indoor pools, we will have plenty of space for you to cool off! We have also finalized our Aquatics Facilities Master Plan, outlining how we want to grow this part of our services in the next 5-15 years, planned through your direct feedback and participation.

Volunteers from all over the community support Durham’s parks and trails through the Adopt-APark and Adopt-A-Trail (APAT) programs. These programs are a great opportunity for you or your organization to make a positive difference in your community. Since 2003, community groups have supported their community by adopting parks and trail segments in Durham. DPR manages nearly 1,800 acres of parkland in more than 68 parks and more than 30 miles of greenways, and we’re still growing. The assistance we receive from adopting agencies is invaluable as we make every effort to care for our natural resources. The City of Durham Parks and Recreation Department provides routine park maintenance and repairs; however, the adopting individuals and organizations give the park or trail the extra care and attention it needs. Adopters work on a variety of projects of their choosing. They have assisted with numerous cleanup, landscaping, and facility improvement projects. Any individual or organization interested in bettering our parks and trails can adopt. For additional information on the Adopt-A-Park and Adopt-A Trail programs, please visit our website dprplaymore.org or contact Mal Atkinson, at 919-560-4355 or dprvolunteers@durhamnc.gov.

Residents can participate in many of our family-oriented activities, from community camp fires, movies, concerts and various special events, to ropes courses, camping, fishing, and kayaking on one of our beautiful lakes. You can also engage with us by volunteering as a coach or mentor, by adopting a park or trail, or volunteering for a one-time special event or festival. There is no limit to how you can choose to play this summer. No matter what you want this summer, we have programs that will fit every age and every need. Visit dprplaymore.org for a full list of DPR programs and activities. Happy playing! Rhonda B. Parker, CPRP Director, Durham Parks and Recreation Burn Boot Camp South Durham adopted a portion of the American Tobacco Trail.

Why a park foundation?

Durham

Fundraising and accepting donations

Private donors often like to give to the private sector because they have more control of how their money will be spent.

parks

Grant writing and management

Many foundations only accept applications from 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations.

Efficiency and flexibility

Foundation funding would allow for purchasing equipment, hiring repair crews, and increasing programming opportunities on an asneeded or emergency basis.

Foundation

Advocacy

Volunteers have more freedom to speak out for budget increases, increased security, or in favor of acquiring new parkland, while a parks department works within the city’s adopted priorities.

Community ties

A non-profit foundation has strong credibility with residents and local institutions.

Consistent leadership

Established July 2015

DurhamParksFoundation.org

A mature nonprofit conservancy or friends group can sometimes provide more continuous leadership than public officials.
