River Park North’s On the Road Series

The recurring River Park North’s On the Road Series is a fun way to enjoy quality family time with your older children while exploring different areas of our region. From Greenville to North Carolina’s coast, learn new things, see new places and create new memories with these special community programs. 

Upcoming On the Road events

There are two River Park North’s On the Road Series events happening next month. The first option is for you if you like hiking and spending time among the trees and nature.

Or, if you prefer more water and less land, check out the second group trip. 

Croatan National Forest and Hammocks Beach Visitors Center

For the Croatan National Forest and Hammocks Beach Visitors Center trip, head to Jaycee Park to gather with the group on Friday, Feb. 2nd, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Bring your hiking shoes, comfy socks and layers to see if you can handle a day of hiking in the Croatan National Forest.

The hike features about three miles of scenic beauty in all, with a travel break in between. After the hike, participants will refuel with a good meal at a local restaurant in Swansboro. Lastly, it’s a quick visit to Hammocks Beach State Park Visitors Center. Pre-registration is required, and the cost ranges from $15 to $18. 

NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores and the NC Maritime Museum

Once again, head to Jaycee Park to meet for the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores and the NC Maritime Museum day-trip on Friday, Feb. 16th, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. Discover the aquatic wonders from the Smoky Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean, from watching river otters to facing a shark! 

After an exciting morning at the aquarium, it’s off to lunch at a local restaurant before ending the day with a visit to the NC Mariners Museum in Beaufort. Pre-registration is required. The cost ranges from $25 to $30.

Location

Both of River Park North’s On the Road Series events in February start at Jaycee Park Center for Arts and Crafts, located at 2000 Cedar Lane in Greenville.
