Bad Blood Brewing Over Old North Durham

Record #:
Residents of Durham are fighting for control of Old North Durham Park. The 3.6 acre park is home to the only public soccer field in downtown Durham, but many some want to change that. The Friends of Old North Durham Park has presented a master plan for proposed changes to the park. Opponents dislike the plan and say the group intends to gentrify the park and disrupt the local center of community life. There is some evidence the city has neglected the park and many Latino residents feel as if there voice is not being heard on the issue.
