Brunswick County now owns land for a 13th park.
County Attorney Huey Marshall said the purchase of three properties near Holden Beach was finalized late Wednesday evening, Dec. 17.
The parcels total nearly 35 acres that stretch from Holden Beach Road SW to the Intracoastal Waterway, just west of the Holden Beach Bridge. The properties, being sold by Sweetwater Investments LLC, are undeveloped.
Brunswick County plans to establish a nature park possibly featuring walking trails, a kayak launch, and picnic areas.
