Coral Bay Park

Come out and enjoy the Town Park, located at 915 W Fort Macon Road, across from the Atlantic Station Shopping Center. This park has a large playset, a swingset, merry-go-round, basketball goal and more for big and little kids to enjoy. If you and your family are looking for a shady place to enjoy a picnic, please visit the well-lighted shaded picnic site beside the playground equipment. New for the 2014 Summer is the long awaited splash pad - which is an interactive water play fountain.

"Circle" Beach Access Facelift

Please visit the Town's main beach access at the "Circle". Staff works hard to keep it maintained and clean for our residents and summertime visitors with a freshly painted, newly designed seawall, three volleyball courts, a soccer court, refreshing paint and look to the on-sand wooden swingset, three lifeguard stands, and a swingset by the old Pavilion parking lot. This is the site for the many of the summer activities planned. This is also the location of the Carteret County Parks & Recreation sponsored and coordinated summer annual beach run series and volleyball tournaments.
