Latham-Whitehurst Nature Park ...Let's Take a Walk in the Park
Time & Location
About The Event
From the Coastal Land Trust:
“The Latham-Whitehurst property was purchased by the Coastal Land Trust and transferred to Craven County for permanent management as a Nature Park. The Nature Park is located at 1095 Broad Creek Road, New Bern, NC 28560 near Fairfield Harbour, approximately one mile north from Lee’s Landing.
Latham-Whitehurst Park opened in 2011 and is comprised of 133 acres of preserved pristine coastal land. This is Craven County’s first nature park, which is geared towards the natural environment as it offers hiking, nature observation, bird watching and access to Broad Creek by way of a boardwalk. It offers an extensive gravel walking trail, a 2,000 ft. boardwalk, a picnic shelter, canoe, kayak and boat docking, restrooms, natural walking trails.”
There will be a short walk of about one-half hour out to the boardwalk and a longer walk exploring the trail network of about one hour. The trails are well maintained but good walking shoes should be worn. Bug repellent is recommended.
