How long is the path around Carolina Beach Lake?

Ken Little

A circuit around the lake path is .67 of a mile.

Carolina Beach Lake was once noted in the Guinness Book of World Records as being the freshwater lake closest to salt water, according to the town Web site, www.carolinabeach.org/

The lake encompasses 11 acres and includes four gazebos, a sheltered picnic area, restrooms and is the site of Pleasure Island’s “Light Up the Lake” celebration during the holiday season.

    My Grandfather lived about 3 blocks for the lake. Hurricane Hazel cut a path from the ocean to the lake which flooded. The flood waters were so great that they flooded his home with at least two feet of water.

    If my memory serves me, I think there were several homes or other structures that ended up in the lake.

    I am sure that the STAR NEWS has pictures of this in their archieves.

    Hazel was very destructive to the Wilmington area.

    The Carolina Beach Lake will also be home to the Pleasure Island Farmer’s Market beginning on April 24th every Saturday through October 9th.

    This will be your opportunity to:

    * obtain the freshest, most flavorful and nutritious produce possible,
    * have an opportunity to talk to the people who grow your food,
    * increase local employment while helping to keep money in the community,
    * reduce consumption of fossil fuels and the resulting pollution from transportation,
    * AND help to create and improve sustainable regional economics.

    The Carolina Beach Farmers Market Committee is in the early stages of getting this set up and are talking with not only farmers, but nurseries, home caners, bakeries, soap makers, artists and musicians to offer all a location at the Market.

    Please tell everyone you know who has home grown or handmade wares about this opportunity and ask them to call either Janet Knott, 910-431-8122 or Alicia Lachance 910-368-9032 for more information.

    So bring your neighbors and gather at the Carolina Beach Lake on Saturday mornings for a good time that will also support our local businesses!
