Wildwood Park

Find peace in the outdoors at Wildwood Park. This 364-acre park, located minutes away from Downtown Greenville, is one of Pitt County’s best places to enjoy the great weather. There are a variety of trails to enjoy, from a stroll around the lake on the natural surface trail, to an accessible boardwalk trail, to the mountain biking trails throughout the park! For those who love being on wheels, don’t miss the new bicycle skills course and pump track that can accommodate different skill levels. For those that still have training wheels, there is a strider bike course as well! This park features fishing docks, camping platforms, a kayak launch, floating dock with three boat slips, a sandy beach, 131 parking spaces, a visitors center, and even a picnic shelter for outdoor events!
