Not 15 minutes from downtown Durham there is West Point on the Eno. The park has walking trails, a beautiful creek and a historic gristmill. There is plent of parking and is a good place for a picnic or group gathering.

Went hiking with father, daughter, and dog (on leash). Great spot of some easy day hiking. Well kept trails and some opportunity to get off of the trails.

There are great photo opportunities every where. The homestead, the mill, the river and dam. It is a wonderful place to just wander or for the hikers.

Great place to get back to nature with family, visiting friends, or be alone. Nice place to get your feet wet or your entire body, to take pictures of people, bugs, and plants, to have a gathering at a picnic shelter or on the ground.

Our family enjoys visiting this local park. Lots of picnic tables and green space for picnics and play. Easy, safe wading in the river as well. Great place for some downtime!
