Adoption of the North Waterfont Park Master Plan is on the council’s consent agenda Tuesday night. In a conceptual plan for the park, which estimates the cost of developing the park at $20 million, are a stage complex and enough space for at least 3,000 people to attend concerts, festivals and performances.

Other features include a splash pad, lawns, shaded areas, hardscapes and trails, gardens, public art, public docking and natural areas.

The city bought the land for the park, 6.63 acres on the northern Cape Fear River, for $4.1 million in 2013.
