Waterfront Park & Kids Park

New Kids Park Playground
Waterfront Park


The Waterfront Park Pier is closed until further notice due to damage sustained during Hurricane Sally. The park remains open but the pier is closed. Work to completely replace the pier began in May. The new pier is expected to be open by late November 2022, weather permitting.

Open to the public year-round, this beautiful family park is located on scenic Wolf Bay. The Edward H. Carroll, Sr. Kids Park playground is also part of the Waterfront Park. Amenities include a 400' fishing pier with covered pavilions and seating (the pier is currently closed due to Hurricane Sally's damage), picnic shelters with grills, restrooms, a paved walking path, and parking. It is the perfect photo opportunity with Wolf Bay as a backdrop.

New Kids Park Playground Is Open

The playground at the Edward H. Carroll, Sr. Kids Park at Waterfront Park has been completely renovated. The old playground equipment was removed in late May 2021 and the brand new playground reopened on November 12, 2021.


Please be aware that the Kids Park playground will be closed on the first Monday of each month for a few hours in the morning for maintenance and cleaning. On Monday, March 7, 2022, the playground will be closed all day for maintenance, weather permitting.

Waterfront Park is many times used for events and special celebrations such as weddings, birthday parties, etc. The park cannot be 'reserved' for exclusive use since it is a public park but we do encourage those who are wishing to use the facilities to call the Parks and Recreation office at 251-981-6039 to at least apprise us of your intended use. Your name and date of use will be recorded on a calendar to hopefully alleviate problems with overlapping events.
