The Parks and Recreation Department of the City of New Bern has worked consistently since the 2006 Master Plan to improve and expand its services and facilities. A number of the recommendations from the 2006 study have been implemented such as trails, picnic shelters, the dog park, outdoor swim facility, piers/docks, and a recreation center renovation, just to name a few. There is so much more to accomplish.
A copy of the existing plan is available for review at New Bern Parks and Recreation/Administration Office, 1620 National Avenue, New Bern, NC 28562.
An update of the study/plan is scheduled to begin in 2013. We will be looking for New Bern citizens to serve on our Steering Committee. If interested or if you have questions, please contact Thurman C. Hardison, Director, at 252-639-2900.
