This is a page of stuff going on at Sandy Creek Park.


Sandy Creek park is a hidden gem and one of the best birdwatching spots around the triangle.

This event can support LOTS of volunteers and I encourage folks to come if you can.  No RSVP needed.


We so appreciate that your EPA group is interested in volunteering again with Keep Durham Beautiful! It is impressive that you are making the best of these circumstances by giving back to your communities!

We have arranged for a work day at Sandy Creek Park, 3510 SANDY CREEK DRIVE 27707 in Durham. From 15-501 business you turn in (west) behind McDonald’s onto Westgate Drive, take a left on Pickett Road and a left on Sandy Creek Drive and follow it to the end.

Keep Durham Beautiful has received a grant from Durham County Open Space and Trails Commission to improve the park. We’re building decks, swings, trails, butterfly gardens, fencing, adding accessible picnic table tops and grills. It is a special park that is very attractive to wildlife and provides plenty of natural trails for recreation and wildlife observation. I think everyone will enjoy discovering this park and working with the fabulous volunteer crew from “Friends of Sandy Creek Park.” You can see pictures of the park on their facbook page at:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Friends-of-Sandy-Creek/276128112404691.

Oct 8, from 9:30 am to noon, we’ll do primarily mulching and trail building. We’ll provide pitchforks, shovels, rakes, gloves and wheelbarrows. If anyone has their own tools or gloves, you are encouraged to bring them also.
