CAROLINA BEACH - A meeting of the Boardwalk Committee will be held Thursday, September 5th at 5:30 pm in the Carolina Beach Town Council Chambers at Town Hall. Discussion items will include updates on plan development, general design, project funding and schedule.
The plan is to replace the entire 750-foot structure with a new 16 foot wide
Boardwalk with all new beach accesses.
In addition, the plan includes extending the Boardwalk 875 feet north to the Pelican Lane Public Access, the previous site for North Carolina Aquarium Pier and Access Park.
The new wider structure design will be handicapped accessible and provide ample access and circulation space for the thousands of visitors we receive each year.
Seating areas, swings, wind sail shaded gazebos, unique water tunnels, vortexes, misters and other “cool – off “ features are included in the oceanfront linear park design.
The landscaped coves between the Boardwalk and sidewalk will be redesigned to include a splash pad park, public art, historical and environmental educational kiosks, shaded seating and picnic facilities and open space for music, art and other cultural events and passive recreational use.
Town Hall is located at 1121 North Lake Park Blvd. Carolina Beach, NC 28428. Please call (910) 458-2999 for more information.
