Playground Brick Campaign

Craven County Recreation & Parks Department is excited to announce that we completed the playground project at Creekside Park. We continue to make improvements to existing areas of the park to make Creekside Park an even better place for all of Craven County's citizens to enjoy. You can purchase a brick in memory or in honor of someone or just to support park improvements. Bricks are displayed near the flag pole in front of the new playground. For more information, contact Billy Wilkes at (252) 636-6606, ext. 5 or email
