Ocean Isle Beach Land Conservancy, in cooperation with the Town, designed and has built a park on Shallotte Boulevard at the old ferry landing on the east end of the island. In 2007, the town of Ocean Isle Beach received $278,891 from the grant program of the Division of Coastal Management’s (DCM) Public Beach and Coastal Waterfront Access Program for the Shallotte Boulevard Recreation area now called Ferry Landing Park. According to DCM, the division awards about $1 million a year in matching grants to local governments for projects to improve pedestrian access to beaches and waterways. Funding comes from the N.C. Parks and Recreation Trust Fund.
We are pleased to inform you that this joint project (OIBLC-Town)has been completed. The Ocean Isle Beach Land Conservancy has built and funded the gazebo, picnic tables, benches, bike rack and flagpole at the park.
