Future Town Projects
Founders Park (Formerly Leland Municipal Park)
Founders Park serves as the flagship facility for a myriad of events and programs throughout the year. The current design of the park provides a place for walkers and runners to remain physically active, and the disc golf course is one of the most popular amenities in the park. The playground also provides enjoyment for youth ages 5-12 years old. Town Council adopted the master plan at their March 2020 regular meeting. Next steps for the project will be to move forward with engineering when additional funding is available.
Sturgeon Creek Park (S Navassa Road)
The currently undeveloped Sturgeon Creek Park is intended to serve as Leland’s second water access park. With more than 78 acres, this park has the potential to become a destination facility both locally and regionally for sportsman and water lovers wishing to gain access to Sturgeon Creek and the Brunswick River. Sitting on Sturgeon Creek, the focus for this facility will be boating access from a NC Fish and Wildlife boat ramp as well as environmental education, preservation, and nature based activities. Town Council adopted the Master Plan at their February 2020 regular meeting. Next steps for the project will be to move forward with engineering when additional funding is available.
