My daughter Ciara and her husband Vincent live in Winterville with their three children Christian, Laila, and Maia. Winterville is a charming town just outside of Greenville and given its proximity to our home in New Bern, my wife Jackie and I get to visit them on a frequent basis. Our grandchildren are active in many activities in the Winterville/Greenville area like bible school, visits to the library, recreational sports, theatre, dance, and more, thanks to their parent’s sacrifices and love for their children. One place they’ve come to enjoy and appreciate is the local park - Winterville Recreation Park.
Surrounded by recently developed subdivisions as well as traditional homes, the park is located in the heart of town at 332 Sylvania Street. The park is more than just a park; it appears to be a focal point of the community. It is well used throughout the year, especially during recreational sports seasons. It is easily accessible by car, bike, or walking. The park is well-maintained by the town’s parks personnel, with manicured grounds and clean restroom facilities.
The park was expanded to 24 acres in 2010, and offers many amenities and resources to the public, including three youth baseball fields for league and tournament play, a large adult softball field, tennis courts for lessons and general community play, an amphitheater for special events, a playground, and 1 mile of walking trail. During the summer and fall months, you’ll find the tennis courts full, softball seasons winding down, youth football practices and games gearing up, and the amphitheater hosting a twilight activity. And, by the way, the concession stand makes a great hotdog!!!|
