Museum Park Open on Market Street

Sheryl Mays, Kitty Yerkes, and Adrienne Garwood

The Cape Fear Museum has created new green space on Market Street. Funded by the 2006 bond referendum and additional community fundraising, the Museum was able to take its parking lot and turn it into an educational park.  Visitors can learn about plant species, watercraft, weather forecasting, and about the interactions of people, land, and water in our region.  

Museum Director Sheryl Mays and Exhibits Manager Adrienne Garwood spoke with us about the process of planning and implementing this new urban outdoor classroom.  The grand opening was Friday, September 25th.  Visitors are welcome to explore the park until 4:00 this afternoon (Saturday, September 26) and Museum entry is free.
