We visited and had thought a Riverside Park would have other things offered.We sat for awhile, it was nice but not what we had expected.We should have researched it more before going.

My family and friends that come to town during the holidays always get a chance to see this area because we always watch the floatilla from this location. Come early though as parking is sometimes difficult to get but will worth the trouble.

The photo is wrong. It shows a private residential dock. The real riverfront park is called Bicentennial Park.

A lot of amenities in a small park with limited but convenient parking. Kayak and SUP launch, pier-type fishing, historical markers and placards. Access under the White Oak bridge to shops and great restaurants in Swansboro.
