Membership in the local Homeowners’ Association is required, and the community offers amenities such as a pool and clubhouse.
If residents are looking for a special place to hold a little one’s birthday, or a way to burn energy on a rainy day, then they can pay a visit to Pump It Up, which is an indoor inflatable play zone located just 3 miles from Harrington Pointe. There are a number of themed play areas, parents are admitted at no additional charge, and are able to interact with their children in the inflatables for one price. Guests can pay by the hour, or reserve sections for special events. They have separate areas for younger children, and there are also drop in times.
Harrington Pointe residents who enjoy history and entertainment will want to visit the American Tobacco Company’s campus in downtown Durham. Currently, the campus serves as a mixed use development, offering shopping and dining opportunities as the center of the Downtown Durham Entertainment district. However, at one time it was one of the largest tobacco processing and cigarette manufacturing companies in the world, producing the “toasted” tobacco that made the Lucky Strike and Pall brands so popular and successful. The company was founded in the early 1800s by Buck Duke, founder and patron of Duke University.
