Jacksonville's new Riverwalk Marina is now open for business! The Marina offers boat slips available to rent, a pump out station for traveling boat owners, a large gazebo and kayak or canoe launch.

Purchased in 2015, construction began in February 2018 when grants and funding was awarded for the project. The project cost about $1 million and was funded by a series of grants including the Parks and Recreation trust Fund, Duke Energy Water Resource Fund and the Division of Coastal Management.

Florence in 2018 heavily damaged the building at the site and delayed the construction of docks and other public access areas.

Sixteen boat slips are now available for leasing from the City. If interested, contact Jacksonville Recreation at 910 938-5312.
