It is a fully residential, adults only park and benefits from a unique location, being ‘in the country’, but just a stones throw away from Durham City. The residents of Low Carrs consist of retired or semi retired people who have created a close knit, caring community. The pretty and peaceful park is an explosion of colour during the spring and summer months.
