Centrally located between Morehead City and Havelock, Gracelyn Park’s appeal is greatly increased because of the convenience the location provides to schools, shopping, dining, fishing and swimming in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Although Gracelyn Park does not currently have any community amenities, it is within walking distance to an 11 acre district park being developed next to the school. Plans for the park when completed will include six lighted tennis courts, a 5,000 square foot recreation center, youth soccer fields, basketball courts, playgrounds, a walking trail and ample parking. The completed facility will be lighted, fully landscaped and will have restrooms and a concession stand.
Public services for the neighborhood consist of the Wildwood Fire Department and the Carteret County Sheriff’s Department. Utilities are provided by Progress Energy and Carteret County Water District.
