Ocean Isle Park and Amphitheater, a 58-acre park on Old Georgetown Road near the mainland’s barrier island, is one of the most popular sites in Brunswick County. While the facilities provide for a wide range of outdoor activities, the outstanding outdoor amphitheater, which will welcome musical performances throughout the summer season as part of its star feature, is perched above it all.
In addition to eight tennis courts, two playgrounds, a large covered picnic area with grills and an easy-to-access restroom facility, and a 5-acre multipurpose field that can be used for football, soccer, and more, the park is a vast outdoor destination with all of this. In addition to plenty of parking at the entrance and amphitheater.
While these facilities are more than adequate to keep a young family occupied for an entire afternoon, future expansions are in the works to make it even more fun and family-friendly. In fact, this first phase of development only utilized 19 of the park’s total 58 acres, with additional softball/baseball fields, a Bocce ball court, a shuffleboard area, and paved walking paths that wander through the beautiful rural environment planned for future additions.
The park is now home to numerous youth and adult sports leagues, and local recreational organizations are working on special summer activities. Regional festivals may look to the facilities for future gatherings, and future visitors may anticipate a lot of weekend fun in the years ahead. In fact, the famous North Carolina Oyster Festival is looking at the park as a potential site for future events, and more community happenings and specific events are sure to fill up the calendar as time goes on.
The most significant draw to the park, which has caught the eye of so many festival coordinators, is without a doubt the 300-person amphitheater. Self-contained and located behind the playground and tennis courts, this stage boasts its own expansive parking lot that can comfortably fit lots of park visitors. The wooden primary amphitheater is undercover with plenty of space for bands and performers alike, not to mention that the seats are positioned close to all theatrics on an outdoor grassy lawn.
In addition, the park and the amphitheater can be rented for private events, including unique corporate retreats, special group galas or seminars, and unforgettable weddings. This is a wonderful place to have a small gathering or a larger event. The whole family will love it!
