FREEMAN PARK TO BE CLOSED DUE TO HIGH SURF
CAROLINA BEACH, NC – Due to high surf anticipated by Hurricane Earl and Tropical Storm Fiona, the Town of Carolina Beach will close Freeman Park to visitors and campers on Wednesday, September 1st at 8pm. The Park will remain closed on Thursday, September 2nd. The park will reopen on Friday, September 3rd by noon or sooner if weather permits.
Freeman Park is very susceptible to high tides. During extreme tides, such as anticipated, the ocean reaches the dunes leaving little if any area for safe passage or camping.
