WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Dram Tree Park will reopen Friday, just in time for the Labor Day weekend.
Crews have added more parking spaces for cars and boat trailers, in addition to open space. The project also included the installation of an underground stormwater retention tank that allows stormwater runoff to go into the ground instead of directly into the Cape Fear River.
The City of Wilmington began work on this phase of improvements in March, but completed the first phase of renovations in October 2010.
The project is a joint effort with Progress Energy and the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, who helped fund the restoration.
