The Trinity Park neighborhood runs along the northern and eastern sides of Duke University's East Campus. Trinity Park, like the Watts Hospital-Hillandale Neighborhood, is characterized by large historic homes, many with unique architectural styles. The area has also seen some new construction in recent years, with the addition of several neo-traditional single family homes in and row houses in the Trinity Heights development directly across from East Campus.
The campus itself, built in the early 1900's as Trinity College, adds great charm to the neighborhood. Large lawns and towering oaks dominate the beautiful scenery. A well-maintained path encircling the campus draws hundreds of walkers and joggers each day. Baldwin Auditorium, also located on East Campus, is home to several musical concerts, including those of faculty staff, students, and guest jazz, folk and classical artists. Trinity Park is within walking distance to the shops and restaurants on Ninth Street and is just down the street from Northgate Mall and Downtown Durham.
