I live in Parkwood (in SW Durham) and love it! Lots of kids running around and little trails that go through wooded areas of the neighborhood to playgrounds etc. It's a little bit further from downtown which is kind of a bummer, but it is closer to UNC if that's where you are commuting to. We lived in Old West Durham when we were renting, but similarly could not find anything in our price range for a 3BR/2BA which was a dealbreaker. Good luck!
