The 25-acre athletic park is scheduled to be completed by November 2021 and will include:

  • Four natural grass, lighted fields 
  • Ample parking with charging capability for E-Cars
  • A large picnic shelter
  • Playground and trails

Public Art


Hoover Road Athletic Park has funding for public art through the City's % for Public Art program. This program allows us to designate up to 1% of the total Capital budget to commission public art.  The Request for Qualifications for Hoover Road will be released in late December early January. A selection committee will be formed to review artist applications and select a finalist. This committee will include representatives of the stakeholders of Hoover Road Park such as neighborhood representatives, park users, local businesses, as well as local artists.  

For more information about the City of Durham's Public Art program visit the Cultural & Public Art Program page. If you are interested in receiving updates about the Hoover Road Athletic Park public art project, please email Annette Smith.
