102 THINGS TO DO IN MYRTLE BEACH
27. Parks & Playgrounds

Overview
Parks & Playgrounds

In addition to our two wonderful State Parks, the Grand Strand is loaded with city parks offering everything from organized sporting events, to live oceanfront rock ‘n’ roll! In Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, you can enjoy state-of-art facilities for soccer baseball, softball, tennis and much more. At our State Parks, you’ll get back to nature along hiking trails, undeveloped oceanfront and educational nature centers. In downtown Myrtle Beach, in the heart of the honky-tonk along the famed Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, you’ll enjoy a wide variety of live music out under the stars, under the shadow of the Sky Wheel. In between, almost every community of the Grand Strand has dozens of parks, some small with just a bench or two, and others quite large with well-maintained playgrounds. The beach will always take top billing along the Grand Strand, but our many parks come in a close second.

North Myrtle Beach Sports & Rec Complex

This recently opened facility has already hosted tournaments on numerous state-of-the-art fields with teams from around the United States in lacrosse, baseball, softball, flag football even Harry Potter’s Quidditch! Additionally, two half-mile hiking and jogging trails, picnic shelters, a 25-acre lake, a large dog park, and an amphitheater hosting seasonal live music events, help round out this new addition to the Grand Strand Park family.

Part of the original Myrtle Beach U.S. Air Force Base, this re-purposed land is home to the Market Common business and residential district. But even before Market Common was fully realized, the Grand Park had been hosting tournaments, dragon boat charity races, football, soccer, baseball and softball tournaments and much more. Cameras installed at nine fields offer live-streaming of all the action, but why not check it out for yourself?

State Parks

Two State Parks call the Grand Strand home; Myrtle Beach State Park at 4401 South Kings Highway, and Huntington Beach State Park at 16148 Ocean Highway in Murrells Inlet. Both parks are very different from one another; Huntington Beach offers more wildlife viewing and is the home of Atalaya, formerly an artist’s retreat and summer home. Myrtle Beach State Park is also beautifully situated oceanfront and offers a fishing pier. (Admission charged)
