The Fabulous Parks and Playgrounds of Topsail Island

Topsail Island has tons of free fun on hand! Want to go to the park? 

Sometimes you just need a break from the beach, sand, and sun – and instead, you might be seeking a shady tree, a simple playground, or a grassy picnic spot. There are several lovely parks scattered across the three towns of Topsail IslandHere are a few of our favorites!
