RALEIGH, N.C. (April 21, 2011) – The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has completed renovations on the Spring Garden Boating Access Area, which is now open to the public.
The site, on the Neuse River, has new docks and bulkhead and improvements to the parking lot. Workers also replaced a fishing pier.
“This is one of four sites we have partnered with Craven County to renovate,” said Erik Christofferson, chief of the Wildlife Commission’s Division of Engineering Services. “Last year, we renovated Maple Cypress and Cool Springs and, in the future, we’ll be working on one more site in Craven County. We are grateful for this partnership that is allowing us to do the work on these sites.”
Like all of the commission’s more than 200 public boating access areas, the Spring Garden ramp is free and open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
