Beachside to Boardwalk Family Fun in Carolina Beach
An 8-acre, downtown county park anchored by Silvermont Mansion, a 33-room Colonial Revival mansion built in the early 1900s. Walk upstairs to the second floor’s beautiful museum, reflecting the era of the original Silvermont mansion family, the Silversteens.
On your visit to the park, wander the wheelchair accessible trail winding past a Woodland Garden of native plants, a Learning Garden where vegetables, fruit bushes and pollinator plants grow in season, an ornamental conifer garden, and a rain garden that manages storm water on the property. Watch Master Gardeners caring for these gardens. Public tennis courts, a basketball court and a new playground are among the amenities offered here. Silvermont will celebrate its centennial in 2017.
