The area around Central Park Elementary School has street parking as well as a parking lot. Please do not park in neighboring business parking lots. We have included a map to show you the closest street parking in the event that the school parking lot is full upon your arrival. The blue dot indicates Central Park School for Children’s Elementary campus at 724 Foster Street, Durham NC 27701. The green 1 marks the location right in front of the school. The green 2’s mark the street parking along West Trinity and the green 3’s mark street parking along Washington Street. *Please read all parking signs to ensure you are parking legally.

Food Around Central Park

Downtown Durham is rich with wonderful food. You can find many dining options within close proximity to the school if you choose not to order lunch from Blue Bayou. Click here for the list of restaurants associated with the map.

If you want to stick around and explore the downtown area after the conference, one of Danielle and Carrie’s favorite restaurants, Luna Rotisserie and Empanadas, has a special place in their heart for educators. Tell them you are a teacher and they will give you a 10% discount on your meal. They open at 5pm for dinner on Saturdays.


Lunch and Learn Sessions

Lunch and Learn sessions are an opportunity for you to sit in a small group and be part of a discussion with your colleagues. A group of educators thoughtfully selected topics that they are passionate about and want to share with you. Grab your lunch, choose a session, and come ready to collaborate. You can learn more about each topic here.
