This was a nice park sitting by the Neuse river easy to walk and enough to see to make me want to go back during the summer

Stopped by for a quick look. Fun playground for young children and a planetarium and interactive science museum also for the young ones. Kayaks are normally loaned out in the summer but not now. You could drop your own canoe or kayak there. Fellow in the science museum said the Nature Center is under construction so maybe later in the summer. Couple of wild birds in cages (owl & hawk), camp site (mostly saw RVs) but there are tent sites and a covered group picnic area. Benches overlook the river. Bathroom facilities. Nice grounds, roses and a train. We didn't see the train run but there is a track and a tunnel that again looks like it could be fun for younger children.

The Don and I stopped by the park on the advice of a downtown merchant who told us about the bird there that was her grandson's favorite. As we pulled up it was obvious that the site was closed for repairs needed due to the recent Matthew related flood. Nonetheless we were greeted warmly by the park manager who graciously gave us a tour and told us all about the upcoming plans for improvement. We are looking forward to going back.

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.
