One of the most exciting recent additions to the Myrtle Beach area is the new North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex. From several well-manicured baseball and softball fields to miles of beautiful nature trails, this 162 acre state-of-the-art complex has something to offer every resident and visitor in our area.
Even Fido gets to play at this great park! The complex houses "Waggin Tails Dog Parks". One park for large dogs and the other for the smaller guys. For the young at heart, there are three playgrounds, six picnic shelters and a 2,000 seat amphitheater. There is a 10 acre meadow that holds a 25 acre stocked lake for fishing/water related activities and at least 3 miles of walking/biking trails.
The sports complex can easily impress the biggest sports fans in the area. It offers 8 regulation soccer/lacrosse fields/football fields, 4 regulation youth baseball/collegiate softball fields, 2 regulation highschool/collegiate baseball fields all complete with misting fans in each dugout, umpire/official rooms, 8 batting tunnels, and 6 picnic shelters-each big enough for the whole team!
Personally, my favorite was the walking trails. My American Eskimo, Teddy Bear and I enjoyed at least 2 miles of the peaceful nature trails and the meadow. However, my wide-eyed, 12 year old son was in awe of the perfect green grass and clay diamond baseball fields. And of course, he couldn't leave without trying out the batting cages! He rated two thumbs up!!
