Open-air, hillside amphitheater built amidst the trees. Outdoor drama was first performed here in Chapel Hill’s Battle Park in 1916 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. University and community groups continue to perform here in the warmer months. Woodland trails into the 93-acre Battle Park start here. Home of the summer Paperhand Puppet Festival. Open daily, dawn to dusk. Makes a beautiful backdrop for a wedding ceremony.
