    It's my favorite outdoor park/gardens in Durham but a big beware to local photographers, Duke Garden wants your money even if you're not doing paid work so be careful and be sneaky when shooting.

    Beautiful park! Wear comfortable walking shoes. Best to go during "off times" during the week. It's very crowded on the weekends.

    Different zones mean you can travel the world in an afternoon walk.

    Sadly no more dogs are allowed starting Jan 1, 2017. Used to be a great place to walk my dog but sadly I won't be visiting anymore.

    The Japanese tea house is authentic, and typical of those used in traditional ceremonies. Consider yourself lucky if you have an opportunity to participate in a traditional ceremony there.
