Experience the city with your heart and soles.

Whether you’re a breathless participant in every bit of Durham culture, or whether you just want to stand on your balcony and let it all wash over you, Foster in the Park puts you a stone’s throw from the best of our growing city.

Durham Central Park

Home to the Durham Farmers’ Market, Durham Central Park is an arts-themed, community-focused municipal park practically on your doorstep. From food truck rodeos to local concerts, good taste is just a few refreshing steps from home.

Durham Farmer's Market

Happening right out your door every Saturday, the Durham Farmer’s Market is an all local, producer-only market. The market features the produce and wares of more than 50 vendors, all of whom are located within 70 miles of the market.

Durham Food Hall

Directly across Foster Street is the soon-to-open Durham Food Hall: a casual, modern space designed for community. With chef-driven culinary and cocktail experiences such as Ex Voto, Local’s Seafood, and more this is sure to be a daily stop for our residents.


Culture, culture, and more culture. The Durham Performing Arts Center (or DPAC, as it is affectionately known) hosts over 200 performances a year, including touring Broadway productions, high-profile concert and comedy events, family shows, and the American Dance Festival.

M Sushi

M Sushi is the Triangle’s first sushi restaurant dedicated to high-quality seafood served in the true Omakase style dining experience.


Beer snob? Good. Our legendary neighborhood brewery serves classic, seasonal, Southern experimental beer using locally farmed ingredients.

Cocoa Cinnamon

This locally owned coffee shop does so much more than pour killer coffee, tea, and sipping chocolates (though it absolutely does that, too). It’s a community gathering place with a relaxed and eclectic atmosphere—so you can either bring a book or bring a date.

American Tobacco Trail

Runners, cyclists, and nature-lovers can have no complaints about this 22.6-mile long Rails-to-Trails project, which hugs an abandoned railroad bed originally built for the American Tobacco Company in the 1970s.

Durham Athletic Park

Durham Athletic Park, affectionately known as "The DAP" (but pronounced like “cap”), is a former minor league baseball stadium that was once home base (pun intended) to the Durham Bulls. Now it hosts the North Carolina Central Eagles and the Durham School of the Arts Bulldogs. Depending on your unit’s location you can even watch games from your own balcony!

Carolina Yoga

Bliss is right around the corner. The Carolina Yoga Company (in our neighborhood, the Durham Yoga Company) will help you re-center and stay connected—to your community, your body, your mind—in an ultra-green studio just a block from home.

Parker & Otis

Parker and Otis is a restaurant and gift shop located just down the street in Brightleaf Square. Open seven days a week, they serve breakfast and lunch and offer an amazing array of charming gifts and gourmet foods, cheese, wine, and candy.

Letters Bookshop

Travel worlds away without ever leaving the neighborhood. Letters Bookshop is an independent store with a curated selection of books used and new, as well as a children's book section stocked with mostly new books.

Zen Succulent

Fill your new home with beauty and life—even if you’ve got a brown thumb. Zen is a modern terrarium and plant craft business specializing in hardy succulents, air plants, moss and other interior plants and decor.
