  • Amenities
  • Enjoy beautiful trails in this ten acre park that preserves ground that played an important role in the final military operation leading to the end of the Civil War called “The Sugar Loaf Lines”. Containing 150 yards of painstakingly restored Civil War earthworks, this park features earthworks defense, originally built by the Confederacy in late 1864, providing a backup defense in the event Fort Fisher were to fall. You will find a gravel walking trail (complete with Historic wayfinding signs) in addition to boardwalks over local marshes. This Park opened February, 2021 and will be open year round from dawn to dusk.
