Weldon is known as the “Rockfish Capital of the World.” Every spring thousands of fishermen flock to the Roanoke River to catch their share of striped bass, also known as “Rockfish.”

A trailhead for the Roanoke Canal Trail, this park offers an overlook with sweeping views of the rapids of the Roanoke River. The site includes a picnic shelter equipped with tables and grills, as well as a playground, restrooms, walking trail and soccer field. At the Weldon Boat Landing, the Roanoke River provides spectacular rapids, which residents and visitors enjoy maneuvering with kayaks and canoes.
