Durham Parks and Recreation provides opportunities for our community to Play More!

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 The last few months at Durham Parks and Recreation have been busy and productive for our staff and the community! We are happy to share with you a few exciting developments that affect us all as residents of Durham and participants in recreational opportunities across the City. In October Durham Parks and Recreation celebrated a great accomplishment – we were re-accredited for five more years by the national organization CAPRA, the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies. This accreditation was not the first time for our department, but it still required an extensive amount of work and commitment by our staff to reevaluate our operational practices and work to make sure our department is running as efficiently as possible. This year we met every standard set by CAPRA, and we are proud of our efforts! We hope that you see this accomplishment as another step forward in improving recreation in Durham. We at DPR are committed to excellence! The other exciting project that took place at the beginning of November was the Oakwood Park Playground build, a project that involved hundreds of volunteers and several community organizations and sponsors. Residents of the Cleveland-Holloway neighborhood, both children and adults, gave input about what they wanted in their park, and with the help of 200 volunteers, the new playground came to life in just one day. The project was facilitated by KaBOOM, a national nonprofit agency dedicated to giving children great spaces to play. They joined in partnership for this project with Durham Parks and Recreation, Keep Durham Beautiful, ABC11, and Disney, the fiscal sponsor.

Playground visioning

Prep day

Build day

It was wonderful to observe this project from beginning to end – as children began by envisioning their dream play space all the way until build day when hundreds of hands moved mulch, drilled holes, planted flowers, and moved playground equipment to make the children’s dream become a reality. The renovation of Oakwood Park was a great example of community partnership and cooperation. If you have a chance, visit Oakwood Park and enjoy the newly-appointed playground and freshly landscaped park. This playground build wasn’t just for the residents of the neighborhood who live near the park, it was for everyone in Durham. You are the reason why Durham Parks and Recreation exists – to provide opportunities for our community to Play More!

ADOPT-A-PARK and ADOPT-A-TRAIL PROGRAMS A Great Way to Give Back - Adopt a Park or Trail! Volunteers from all over the community support Durham’s parks and trails through the AdoptA-Park and Adopt-A-Trail (APAT) programs. This program is 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 through the Adopt-A-Park and Adopt-A-Trail (APAT) programs. DPR manages nearly 1,800 acres of parkland in more than 68 parks and more than 20 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’s Parks and Recreation and General Services Departments provide 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: www.DPRPlayMore.org. You may also contact Mal Atkinson, at 919-560-4355 or dprvolunteers@ durhamnc.gov.

CANINE RECREATION Dog Parks

While regular leash walks provide a level of exercise that promotes good dog health, access for off-leash play and socialization is equally important. • All dogs MUST be registered with DPR annually • To ensure that we provide a healthy environment for all participants, we have adopted the vaccination requirements recommended by the American Animal Hospital Association. Current vaccination history for: 1. Rabies (1 or 3 year) 2. Distemper/parvo (1 or 3 year) 3. Bordetella (1 year) 4. Fecal exam-negative (1 year) *We also accept titer results in lieu of vaccinations except for rabies (state law). When these requirements are met, a DPR dog park tag is assigned. All dogs must wear their current DPR tag while playing in the park. Fees: Tags are valid for one year. Beginning July 1, 2013 tags will be valid January 1-December 31. Tags purchased beginning July 1, 2013 will expire December 31, 2014. Online registration for dog park tags is now available. Register online with barcode #11511, or contact DPR for more information.
