“Great hidden park!”

RDU Observation Park
Ranked #2 of 13 things to do in Morrisville
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 September 2012

I think most people have no clue that this even exists. This park sits in between RDU's two main runways. There is an observation deck with seating and the traffic control tower audio is played over outdoor speakers. You can sit back and enjoy the day watching all types of planes coming and going.

On the ground level area there is a small playground and paved runway areas for children to play with toys or just run around.

We actually enjoy grabbing something to eat nearby and parking out here to watch the planes fly by. If you enjoy aviation at all, or have a child that is amused by planes, this is definately a park that should be on your list.
