City Center is an extremely small neighborhood centrally located in Durham, North Carolina. As an urban metropolis, City Center is home to both residential and commercial properties often housed in the same structure, so this is a great, urban neighborhood for young professionals to live in! With plenty of upscale apartment complexes, there is no shortage of residential options. Commercially, there are plenty of local bars, restaurants, and coffee shops. City Center is also home to the Durham Convention Center, the Carolina Theater, and the Durham Visitor's Center. Those in this neighborhood also have easy access to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and the Durham Performing Arts Center, both located immediately south of City Center, and the Museum of Durham Museum, located west of the neighborhood.

Durham experiences all four seasons distinctly. The summers can be quite hot and humid while the winters are cold, wet, and have mild snowfall. The fall and spring are more mild in nature.

Located in the heart of Durham, City Center is completely artificial with no greenways located in the neighborhood's boundaries. Because of the more urban environment, however, this neighborhood does have plenty of wide sidewalks to keep you and your furry friend safe from downtown, city traffic. Unfortunately, there are very few trees in this neighborhood so it may be difficult to find shade or cooler concrete for your pup's paws during hot and sunny summer days. Thankfully, this neighborhood is rather flat, so you and your dog do not have to worry about steep inclines or extra strenuous daily walks!

The boundaries of City Center include West Morgan Street to the north, North Magnum Street to the southeast, and Ramseur Street to the southwest. West Main Street, a major roadways through the city, also runs through City Center and is home to many local restaurants and bars.

Unfortunately, there are no public greenways located within the boundaries of City Center. Some of the upscale apartment complexes have rooftop green spaces that may be accessible to you and your pup if you live there. However, there are a few greenways within walking distance of City Center.

There is a large, open, unnamed greenway next to the Durham Performing Arts Center, located to the south of the neighborhood. While there are no paths, little foliage, and your pup will need to remain leashed, it is a nice grassy area for when your pet needs to relieve themselves. 

To the north of the neighborhood, pedestrians will find Durham Central Park which typically hosts several special events throughout the year. However, less than half a mile to the east of City Center, you will find the Downtown Durham Dog Park! This off-leash area has a small dog and a large dog area, benches, and waste collectors.
