The newly expanded and improved Dram Tree park and boat launch is now open.
The city began work on this phase of improvements to Dram Tree park in March 2012. The upgrades add much needed additional parking spaces for cars and boat trailers, as well as more open space. The project also included drainage improvements. An underground stormwater retention tank was installed, allowing stormwater runoff to go into the ground rather than directly into the Cape Fear River.
