BELVILLE, NC (WWAY) — The Brunswick Riverwalk at Belville is having its grand opening this weekend, but we had a sneak preview today.
The new waterfront park includes a boardwalk, fishing pier, nature trail, picnic grounds and lots more.
“We wanted to do more though than just create a recreational facility,” Belville Commissioner Joe Breault said. “We wanted to make this something that would, that people could learn from. People could enjoy. We wanted to tie in all the history of the area.”
“It’ll become an oasis of education, recreation, environmental awareness and everything for the public for the next 50 or 100 years,” Breault said.
The grand opening will be held this Saturday from 12:30 – 3 p.m at 580 River Road, Belville, NC across from Belville Elementary School. There will be live music, food, beverages, pirates, and free balloons for kids.
