Two neighborhood parks open in North Myrtle Beach

— Two new parks opened in North Myrtle Beach this week on sites where city water towers previously stood, said city spokesman Pat Dowling.

One is located on 41st Avenue, the other on Edge Drive between 18th and 19th Avenues south.

The water towers were out of date and demolished. Each of the “pocket parks” were designed with input from residents in the neighborhoods, North Myrtle Beach City Council and the North Myrtle Beach Parks and Recreation Commission.

At 41st Avenue South, the park has a Try Active America warm-up station for exercising as well as a walking path with two pergolas. Benches, trash cans and a pet waste station are also included along with garden-style plantings and a circular mounded turf area meant to visually reference the former tower.

The Edge Drive park contains a fountain and a walking path surrounding a detailed vegetative area that offers a visual reference to the location of the water tower that once stood there. A pet waste station, trash cans and benches are also at the park.
