The park in Duke University is extremely large with many attractive multi-colored flowering plants as well as beautiful lake. This is indeed a very enjoyable relaxing park for the family to stroll in.

We had the opportunity to tour Duke and we were pleasantly surprised! The campus is large and spacious. The grounds are well kept. The chapel is beautiful and the building are breathtaking!

We visited Cameron Indoor Stadium. It was really beautiful for a basketball arena. The Hall of Fame on the 2nd floor was really neat to walk around as well. If you or your kids are in to basketball, this is a fun place to visit!

I live close to the University and often visit to view and appreciate the architecture. Beautiful buildings, any visitor needs to visit Duke Chapel and Cameron Indoor Stadium!

You can tell this is usually a beautiful campus, but I'm afraid all the construction was a bit of a turn-off for our high school freshman trying to decide where she wants to go to college!

There was a lot of construction going on. Unfortunately, the chapel was closed for renovation. The architecture is lovely.

Beautiful landscaping. Gorgeous, historic buildings and architecture. Love to people watch and butterfly, bird and squirrel watch. Have a picnic on a lawn and clean up after yourself to keep it beautiful.

We visited the campus in August of 2013. Splendid campus, spectacular garden, michael jordan memorabilia & free bus ride! The structures, buildings and church are architectural masterpieces.
