If you are in Morrisville with kids, you would like to take them to RDU Observation Deck which is a popular place among kids. The deck is situated near Air Traffic Control Tower and gives everyone an opportunity of watching the planes fly. You can spend as much as time you want in plane-watching and listening to pilot-tower communications with the help of audio speakers on the elevated observation platform. The place is also famous for the parties organized here especially for kids. In addition to this, the deck also features a play area, picnic area, and educational placards.

RDU Observation Park Reviews & Ratings
Very good view of the primary RDU airport runway. One is able to hear what apparently is the control tower. I believe various phone apps can tell you which planes are landing. Plaques of various planes are on exhibit on the observation deck. Great places to see planes and let kids run around and play. We had to wait for playto land but kids had good time. beautiful scenery from here..kids and adults alike love this place. Also pet friendly :-) Wonderful atmosphere.
I usually expect to be able to visually see the majority of the runway, but all you could see was the plane far off in the air, then a huge building was in the way and then the plane taxiing to the gate. Seemed like a lot of money spent on the ability to stare at an NC State transportation building. There is a small playground with a climber and some informational photos.
Awesome place to ve With the kids and also aviation lovers... There's bathroom's, kids plane ground and of course the deck.... You get to relax and just watch planes take off and land all day...the only thing is that there is a construction but no worries you can see all.
Started hanging out here when my son was 1. He is now 16. He still enjoys it and has a complete fascination with airplanes now! Take a picnic and enjoy your time there. They have a small kids area for the little ones to enjoy.
This is a great place to take the family to watch the planes land. The observation deck is set off the runway, and while I was there, I did not see any planes lift off, but plenty come in. Parking is free as well. While it is a deck with a roof, it is more like a Ramada meaning no walls as shown in the picture. The day I went, a thunderstorm passed over minutes after I got there and we got soaked. I didn't mind at all, just a reminder for those that might think it is weather proof. I only gave it four stars for design. Accessibility for handicapped persons is a bit limited when it comes to going to use the restrooms. (Unless I did not see another way) as I had to walk around and down minimal stairs to get there. No big deal, however, walking for me is difficult. Sans that issue, 5 star all the way for me!!
