Research Triangle Park (RTP) is the leading and largest high technology research and science park in North America. Founded in 1959, this 7,000-acre namesake for the entire Triangle region is two miles wide and eight miles long. Research Triangle Park is based in Durham with an extension now spilling into Wake County toward Cary and Morrisville.
Just four miles from Downtown Durham and encompassed on three sides by the City of Durham, RTP was originally named for its affiliation with three
major research universities: Duke University in Durham, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State Universityin Raleigh. This part of Durham is approximately equidistant between Raleigh and Chapel Hill.
