Lovely Greenfield Park

Just south of downtown, be sure to visit delightful Greenfield Park. With beautiful old Spanish moss-draped cypress trees rising from the 150-acre lake, a 4.5 mile biking and hiking trail around the lake, an occasional alligator in the lake, canoeing and paddle boats, tennis, thousands of flowering plants in magnificent gardens plus a number of other amenities, Greenfield Park has something for practically everyone – but please don’t try to feed the ’gators.

Few if any other cities the size of Wilmington have a $12.5 million art museum, but Wilmington proudly features the Cameron Art Museum, the only accredited art museum in southeastern North Carolina. Situated on 9.5 acres, the modern structure has 40,000 square feet housing a variety of collections plus a gift shop and gourmet café.
