Trinity Park is one of Durham's oldest neighborhoods.  Trinity Park adjoins Duke University's East Campus and is within easy walking distance from Durham's central downtown business district.  Trinity Park is near Northgate Mall to the North, with easy access to I-85 and The Durham Freeway, but outside earshot of highway traffic noise.   The area is about 40 square blocks of streets that are lined with old trees, flower gardens from homeowners who take great pride in this area and even narrow alleyways leading to garages behind many homes.

Historic Trinity Park Homes

Many of Trinity Park's historical homes from the 19th and 20th centuries have earned the neighborhood a place in the National Register of Historic Districts.

Most people who live in Trinity Park belong to a strong Trinity Park Neighborhood Association (TPNA).

Homes in the area housed professors, doctors, politicians and business leaders in the late 1800's.  The styles of homes also varied greatly, including Neo-Colonial, bungalows, Victoria and other styles.  

This area of Durham grew and thrived during the 1920's through the 1940's, but as people began to move to the suburbs the area fell into significant decline.  Home values declined and many homes were either in disrepair or even boarded-up.  But in the early 1970's a re-emergence began and the area was named "Trinity Park."  It all seemed to start when a road project started chopping down beautiful trees along Trinity Avenue for the purpose of building a major thoroughfare through the center of Durham.  Protests eventually stopped the roadway and pride seemed to return to the neighborhood.

Many older homes which had been turned into run-down apartments in the 60's and 70's have now returned to single owner, single family residences.  Many of the homes have been carefully restored as historic renovations. There are now over 365 historic structures in the Trinity Park area of Durham.

Trinity Heights

When talking about the Trinity Park area, many will also include the Trinity Heights area.  The Trinity Heights area is located just to the North of Duke's East Campus.  Homes in Trinity Heights include more recently constructed neo-traditional single family and row houses.  Although the homes are newer, they still fit with the broader neighborhood's historic look and feel.
