Creekside Overlook Park was established in 2002 after the floods of Hurricane Floyd. The construction was sponsored by Start with Your Heart, NC Baptist Men, the Grifton Garden Club, and Pitt County Physical Activity and Nutrition Coalition.
Overlook Park is conveniently located between the Catechna Indian Village and the NC Wildlife Boat Ramp. It is currently dedicated as open space with the exception of a shelter with a cement pad that holds a picnic table and swing. The Contentnea Creek provides excellent year-round fishing, and a challenging, swift-flowing current for the canoeist. This location is perfect for a family picnic after a long day on the creek.
