OCEAN ISLE — A seaside Brunswick County town was recently presented with a six-figure check for its parks and recreation department.
North Carolina House Rep. Frank Iler bestowed a $395,000 state grant check to the Ocean Isle board of commissioners to fund the second phase of its Town Center Park expansion. The money was allocated in budget revisions signed by Governor Roy Cooper last week.
“The park expansion project includes a host of new amenities that will help make Ocean Isle Beach an even more enjoyable place for residents and visitors for years to come,” said Rep. Iler in a press release. “I’m proud to have been a part of making this grant possible.”
The plan will help fund the $790,000 price tag on the second phase of projects, including a picnic area, fitness station, basketball court, play area and additional parking at Town Center Park.
The initial phase of the park project included an outdoor stage, interactive fountain, a playground, open lawn and pergola shade structures. The park opened in 2020.
