Carolina Beach State Park
The Wilmington Roadrunners Club partners with Carolina Beach State Park to put on this annual event to help support our local parks. CBSP and Fort Fisher State Recreation Area established a local Friends of State Park group to enable contributions directly to our local Pleasure Island Parks. Proceeds will help support park projects, to be determined by Staff, at both parks for special purchases not allocated by their budget. In the past, funding has been used for trail repairs, a flag pole, museum purchases, and computer upgrades. We are so lucky to have access to these wonderful facilities. Please join the Wilmington Roadrunners Club to support Carolina Beach State Park and Fort Fisher State Recreation Area. To Register: Click Here...
