Soundfront Park

The Colington Harbour soundfront park is located on a peninsula next to the Clubhouse and swimming pool.  Surrounded by the marina on the South and by Roanoke Sound / Albemarle Bay on the North , the park features acres of sandy beaches, picnic areas shaded by live oaks, and tot lot equipment for children. 

On the soundfront beach, a swim area designated with bouys and ropes offers a perfect summer retreat for the whole family.  With gently-sloping water depths and (normally) only light wave action,  the park beach usually presents an easier alternative for parents watching over younger swimmers.

Other amenities in the park include a large picnic shelter, bulkhead areas perfect for crabbing and fishing, and a fish cleaning staion.  The picnic shelter may be rented by (or sponsored by) a Colington Harbour Association member, upon completion of an application, payment of fee, and approval of the Association.
