Leigh Farm Park is a 82.8 acre property anchored by a seven-acre historic core listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The historic area includes the Leigh House (circa 1835), an early 19th century dairy, a mid-19th century slave cabin with notable stick-built chimney, smokehouse, corn crib, and a late 19th century well house and carriage house. The property also features a second mid-19th century slave cabin with a 1930 Rustic Revival log addition, an early 20th century tobacco barn and pack house, several mid-20th century residences, and wooded acreage that was historically open agricultural land.

The Durham-Orange Recreational Disc Association operates an 18-hole recreational and professional level disc golf course.
