As July's National Parks and Recreation month comes to an end, we'd like to say thank you to all our community members, vendors, and incredible staff here at Onslow County Parks and Recreation who have made #OurParkandRecStory so much more meaningful along the way!

We started the month off with a bang πŸŽ†! At our 2021 Freedom Festival for Fourth of July! It was an amazing show and received wonderful feedback from the community. With over 10,000 guests it's one of our biggest events all year and it was wonderful to see all the patriotism in our local area! β€οΈπŸ€πŸ’™

Towards the end of the month, we hosted ✨ Flashback Friday ✨ One of our first community movie nights in awhile! We had families and friends gathered in the park to watch Disney's Brother Bear! Everyone enjoyed yard games while waiting for the movie, and the kiddo's looked awesome with their Brother Bear crafts! 🐻

To wrap the month up, Onslow County Parks and Recreation held our second annual Car & Bike Show at Coastal Plains Raceway Park! Members from the community and even far away came together to battle it out for who had the coolest car around🏍🏎! It was truly a treat getting to see so many hot rods in one place!

Once again, thank you Onslow County for always supporting your local events, and be sure to continue checking out or page for more opportunities to have fun with the community!

Thank you Terri Alphin Smith & Co. for hanging out with our Swansboro Camp and providing them with Pelican's Snoballs Jacksonville NC. They loved it and had a blast. Thank you for taking the time to take some cool photos and chat with the kids. The generousity from you and your team is greatly appreciated!

We had the best day visiting local businesses with our team for some marketing fun! Our day ended at Pelican's Snoballs Jacksonville NC where we had some fun with Onslow County Parks and Recreationβ€” hanging out with these summer camp kids was priceless! We love getting out & about and enjoying all that Onslow County has to offer. From the friendly people to all of the small businesses we love & support (not to mention our beautiful beaches) it’s obvious why we love where we live πŸ’™

No class this Thursday, July 1. Classes resume July 8
Any chance Onslow County will open a dog park at Onslow Pines?????
This class can be very slow paced which makes it IDEAL for those with mild mobility concerns or who are hesitant to go to a studio class. We use blocks, straps, and chairs as needed. My gentle yoga classes explore basic yoga poses in a vinyasa style-poses flow into each other. I break down the flows into smaller pieces and we put them together to form longer flows. This gives you a chance to practice the poses and really feel them in your body. There is no pressure; this is YOUR practice and you can take the time you need. Although I prefer to practice outside, the temperatures and inclement weather will influence the decision to be inside or out. Feel free to contact me.
Gentle style, slower pace...a portion of the proceeds goes to the Onslow County P & R Youth Scholarship Program
Hello! I know this will seem weird, but we had to move from Alabama to Franklin, NC. We are having to move once again from Franklin to Jacksonville at end of this month. I have a 14 year old daughter named Lilly, and a 15 year old son named Ayden. They need some people to meet in the community. They need friends.
Will 8u be having a season? I have called, emailed and fb messaged and no one has got back with me. We still haven’t heard from a coach. Would like a status update on this please and thank you!

"It is only in the giving of oneself to others that we truly live." ~ Ethel Percy Andrus Some kids and their families living in the Topsail Island Area are suffering hardships as a consequence of COVID restrictions on attending school. Families and children in our community with food insecurities are on the rise. Parents are making difficult sacrifices after losing their jobs on whether to purchase food, winter coats or basic items like shoes and blankets. We partner with Dixon Elementary, Dixon Middle and Dixon High School. For over 35 years, Kiwanis of Topsail Island Area members have volunteered time and funds to help those in need in the local communities meet basic needs. During this unprecedented time, we humbly request your consideration to purchase a live balsam wreath, centerpiece, or spray - for yourself, a family member, friend, teacher, or neighbor because Kiwanis will receive $8 for each item purchased through this program. It will help us raise the funds to care for the students and families as the holidays approach. All proceeds will benefit our local service projects for the children of our community. We are living in a moment when generosity matters more than ever! Below are the instructions for our Online Fundraiser - Please share the link and instructions with your friends, family, PTA, clubs, churches, or neighbors - anyone that might be interested! Go to https://giftitforward.com Enter the fundraising code: KIWANINC002 "Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.
