As a premier facility for sporting tournaments, North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex draws thousands of amateur athletes each year competing in everything from Ultimate Frisbee to Quidditch.
And with the addition of a state-of-the-art wakeboarding facility, the park is quickly becoming a destination for outdoor adventure, too.
Along with the new cable wakeboarding attraction, the 140-acre park offers an inflatable floating challenge course, Segway tours, and elecric bike tours and rentals.
Operating out of the park's 20-acre lake is Shark Wake Park, offering visitors the opportunity to catch air on a wakeboard, wake skate, knee board, foil board or the traditional water skis. Instead of being pulled by boat, cables as long as 3,200 feet tow riders across the water. Beginners start out on a linear cable with controlled speeds. The park also offers jumps and rails for those with advanced wakeboarding skills.
There's also Obstacle Island, a large, inflatable floating challenge course with 25 elements, including climbing towers, slides and monkey bars. The bouncy aqua playground is slippery, so be prepared to get wet on this one.
For more grounded fun, try the Segway Experience. After brief instructions on the operation of the two-wheeled personal transporters, a guide will take you for a spin around the complex before hitting the park's wooded trails for more challenging fun.
Or book an all-terrain guided adventure tour with North Myrtle Beach Electric Bikes. The 1.5-hour tour will take you along nature trails and open dirt roads all the way to the Intracoastal Waterway. You can also rent an E-bike and set off on your own.
In addition, the park features 28 acres of cypress wetlands and natural areas, a 12-acre native Carolina bay surrounded by a nature trail, 2.8-miles of walking trails, three playgrounds, seven picnic shelters and a dog park for large and small pooches.
North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex is located at 150 Citizens Circle in Little River.
