Add One More 'Attaboy" for the Kure Beach Ocean Front Park Committee
They done it again! They are well on their way to receiving full funding for the new Kure Beach Ocean Front Park. Their continued talents at soliciting and securing funds for this project are admirable and the citizens of Pleasure Island salute their tireless efforts.
Kure Beach receives grant for an ocean front park
KURE BEACH -- A grant is helping officials at Kure Beach repay a loan for an ocean front park. The North Carolina Parks and Recreation Trust Fund recognized the value of the Kure Beach Ocean Front Park by awarding the town $500,000 for the project.
The park will feature a pavilion and direct access to the beach.
The town acquired the Rolling Surf Motel in December 2007 for $3.6 million.
With this award, the town has raised $2.3 million to repay the loan acquired to purchase the property.
