Residents enjoy day off at Long Leaf Park

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)–With Monday being a federal holiday, lots of people were out enjoying the day off.   

Long Leaf Park in Wilmington was a popular spot this afternoon. Lots of people walking, with or without pets, playing basketball, tennis or volleyball.   

There were also plenty of kids making the most of a day out of class.   

“I’m here at Long Leaf Park just hanging out with my friends, having a really good time, going to hang out with my family and have nice dinner later,” said Harrison Hennessey. 

“We’re going to go to Jungle Rapids next, and we’re having a really good time. We just came from the pond and saw two giant fish,” said Kobie Fremin. 

Everyone we spoke with say the sunshine and warmer temperatures were a welcome break from this weekend’s very chilly weather.
