“David made this visit memorable.”

Neuseway Nature Park
Ranked #3 of 19 things to do in Kinston
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 December 2016

We toured this iron clad confederate boat after an introduction by David. He gave us an excellent overview of the boat's history and the construction of this replica. He had many stories about how this boat was built by volunteers and the challenges faced in building this. He definitely made our visit very informative and very enjoyable.

This is well worth the 45 minutes we spent at this site.

Eat a take-out lunch at the MaryMac Ritch Lookout over the Neuse River. Park there, beside the Farmer's Market. Then, walk around the walkway to the river's edge and sit in a swing to relax. Take the children to the nature museum and the planetarium onsite. Enjoy the ride on the train onsite. Park you RV in the park. Visit the African American Music Trail Park down South Queen Street. And get a schedule from Parks & Rec for the Historic Grainger Stadium to enjoy baseball in Kinston.

Great place for a RV stopover. Presently rebuilding from the flooding. Looking forward to going back this summer.

This is a beautiful park by the river. Has a nice gazebo and is very near the Farmer's Market and downtown Kinston. A great place for a romantic walk or just to take your dog out for a stroll. Well maintained and pretty.

This is an older park and nature center but with support from community donations, it is a fun and educational experience. The planetarium is very good. Kids love the hands on play areas, The basement nature displays may be a bit scary for small children since you are going into a basement, but it is very interesting to see the fish, snakes, turtles, etc. The outside play area is lots of fun. There is a picnic area, and also a campground located on the river. Fishing available with NC license.
