Brunswick County’s Town Creek District Park is a 55 acre park with 2.5 miles of walking paths that crisscross their way throughout the park. The paved walking paths have been designated as the TRACK Trails, delivering park visitors to ball fields, recreational facilities, exercise equipment stations, and the natural resources found around the park.
Along the outer perimeter of the trail, visitors will have the opportunity to view ducks and other aquatic birds and animals in a small pond, as well as walk beneath some of the tree species found in the region. In the southeast corner of the park, the trail makes its way through a wooded corridor that links the park with the local elementary school.
The TRACK Trail brochures will help visitor identify some of the common tree, bird and flower species found along the trail, and in the Brunswick County region. And, the Animal Athletes brochure will help kids and families get physically fit as they copy the athletic movements of the animals that can sometimes be found around the park.
Have fun exploring the park!

Kids in Parks has partnered with The College of Health and Human Services at the University of North Carolina Wilmington (CHHS UNCW) through their 5-county collaborative group called the Southeastern North Carolina Regional Health Collaborative (SENCRHC). The SENCRHC’s mission is to improve individual and population/community health in Southeastern North Carolina through regional programs and interventions that promote residents in Southeastern NC to be actively engaged in healthy lifestyles.
The Center for Healthy Communities (CHC) is providing critical backbone functions that provide the guidance, coordination and communication required to maintain an effective collaborative. These functions include facilitation of the regional public health diabetes network and implementation of a region-wide health intervention through the Kids in Parks program.
The TRACK Trail at Town Creek Park was completed through the partnerships formed with the above mentioned groups, and in partnership with the Brunswick County Parks and Recreation Department and Brunswick County Health Services.
