Town of Fenwick Island

Parks and Recreation

Fenwick Island Community Park:

The Community Park, located at the corner of West Cannon Street and Coastal Highway, houses playground equipment for young children, a gazebo and shuffleboard court. The Barefoot Gardeners Club has installed a stunning butterfly garden that is guaranteed to keep you entertained with its changing display.

The park is funded in part by donations. If you wish to support these activities and improvements to the park, we would be glad to honor your donation with a Engraved Memorial Brick to be placed in the walkway that winds through the park. You may also purchase a Fenwick Island License Plate at Town Hall for $10.

The Town also maintains a shuffleboard court inside the Park. Equipment is available to use at Town Hall if you wish to play a round! 

Cannon Street Park:

Cannon Street Park, located on West Cannon Street behind the Public Safety Building, offers a canoe/kayak ADA launch, a picnic area, and a brick walkway to the canal. The park also offers half-court basketball and benches to enjoy a beautiful rain garden and water wildlife.  To preview the Little Assawoman Bay Water Trail map: Kayak/Canoe Launch Map.
