Durham Recreation & Park District (DRPD) is one of five recreational special districts in Butte County. Originally established in 1947 to serve the community by taking care of the Durham Community Park. The twenty-four acre park was specifically set aside when land allocations were established in 1918. This park has served as a social gathering place since the inception of the community.

The District has expanded to include the Dwight Brinson Swim Center, Louis Edwards
Park, Ravekes Park, Midway Park, Nelson Park, the Durham Memorial Hall and various
