Waterfront Park Pier is open
The Waterfront Park Pier reopened in late December 2022 after being completely rebuilt. The pier had be severely damaged during Hurricane Sally in September 2020.
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' pier with covered pavilions and seating, 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
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.
