NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County is considering expanding a public park.
Last night, commissioners talked about buying land around Castle Hayne park off Parmele Road.
They have until December 16 to purchase the land for a price of a little more than a million dollars. That's three million less than expected in their budget.
County parks director Jim McDaniel said expansion would add an entrance off Castle Hayne road, which would keep visitors from having to go through a neighborhood to get to the park.
County Commissioners will vote Monday whether to approve the purchase.
