Mini Golf and Concessions
The Town Park includes an 18 hole mini-golf course with concession stand and restroom facilities. The mini golf course and concession stand are open daily during the summer from 10 AM – 10 PM with mini golf costing only $5 per person (age 6 and under free!) – the best family friendly rates on the island! Cash and credit cards accepted. The mini golf/concession amenities are open during the summer season, closed in the off-season, and will reopen in the spring.
Make sure to bring a bathing suit and visit the splash pad, which is an interactive water play fountain ideal for children of all ages. The splashpad is open during the summer season, 7-days a week from 10 AM – 8 PM.

“Circle” Main Beach Access
Please visit the Town’s main beach access at the “Circle” with public parking, beach access, and restrooms. Staff works hard to keep it maintained and clean for our residents and summertime visitors with volleyball courts, three lifeguard stands, and a swingset by the old Pavilion parking lot. This is the site for the many of the summer activities planned. This is also the location of the Carteret County Parks & Recreation sponsored and coordinated summer annual beach volleyball tournaments and beach run series.
