Both home and visiting clubhouses at the DBAP will feature extensive changes, with the Bulls locker room doubling in size. New female locker room private space to accommodate female umpires, coaching staff members and more will also be added, featuring 19 lockers, as well as full showers and restrooms.
To comply with Major League Baseball's Player Development License, the Bulls and City of Durham are in the process of making required facility upgrades to Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
Upgrades include, but not limited to, the addition of a new batting tunnel, front office and player locker room reconfigurations and upgrades, training room upgrades and any associated HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and architectural finishes.

A new 3,750 square foot air-conditioned indoor hitting facility featuring two hitting tunnels is also in the works, and fans will be able to watch Bulls players hit before games from Blackwell Street. The hitting facility will also be connected with a new multi-purpose space perfect for birthday parties and other private events.
With the expansion of both the home and visiting clubhouses, a new front office area for the Durham Bulls front office staff is being worked on. Included in this project are new offices and cubicles, along with a new conference room and kitchen/break room and more.
In addition to an updated front office, a new History Hallway will be created for fans to celebrate and experience the extensive history of the Durham Bulls' franchise, highlighting the players and coaches who have made their mark in the Bull City and the game of baseball.
The new and larger Ballpark Corner Store will be a haven for Bulls fans. The store will feature additional floor square footage to house the latest and greatest Bulls gear, along with a TV wall and new fixtures.
