The question that is buzzing around Little River and North Myrtle Beach these days, is "Have you been to the new park?" The consensus from all those who say "Yes"... "It's amazing!"

For the dog lover, there are two separate dog parks, one for those over twenty five pounds, and one for those less than twenty five.  Large trees shade parts of both parks, making it cooler for hot days. Benches are placed throughout, for the comfort of the dog owner.  It's play date time for your pet!
For parents or grandparents, the playgrounds are calling your name!  The blue one is located at the soccer fields, the green one is in the center of the baseball fields, and the red, yellow, and orange playground, the largest one, located in the center of the park, is accompanied by two pavilions, single picnic tables, restrooms, and close parking spaces.  All the playgrounds are state of the art equipment, with bold colors and imaginative play areas.  See your little ones smile as they ride the two story slide! 
In the very center of the park, there is a large meadow, set aside for family fun.  Throw a frisbee, kick a ball, or play chase with your kids! Just come to relax and enjoy. A large amphitheater connects to the meadow, and will host concerts in the coming months.

Embark on a leisurely stroll or a scenic run, on trails and sidewalks scattered throughout the park and around the lake.  No doubt about it, there is much to see and experience at the new North Myrtle Beach Sports and Tourism Park, located off the Main Street connector in North Myrtle Beach.
