Erosion at Snow’s Cut Park was evident when this picture was taken in November 2001. The gazebo has now been removed. StarNews file photo.

According to Tara Duckworth, director of the New Hanover County Parks Department, the gazebo and steps were removed because of safety concerns associated with erosion issues.

Snow’s Cut Park is leased from the Department of the Army and has been since 1981. The gazebo and steps were built through a grant in 1989 with the Division of Coastal Management. All parties agreed that both features should be removed.

Duckworth says there are no plans to rebuild the steps or the gazebo, but reminds patrons that the park still offers two picnic shelters, restrooms and playground facilities to enjoy.
