The 153 acre, multi-use North Glynn Recreational Complex in Brunswick can be a day-long fun trip.
Why eat indoors, when you can relax under century-old live oaks, breathing fresh sea air, surrounded by ocean, river and marsh views. Pack your own basket or get takeout from a local restaurant and choose from a wealth of outdoor sites.
Our designated picnic areas can accommodate any size group with small rental pavilions, barbeque grills, and running water. Larger groups can let one of our local caterers fix up a southern barbeque, seafood boil, or a house specialty. There are no charges for use of the facilities unless you make reservations with Glynn County Recreation & Parks (optional but recommended for larger groups).
Please respect the environment by leaving each area you visit as you found it and pack out what you packed in. Recycling is available at many area parks. Thank you for helping us to keep the Golden Isles beautiful!
The St. Simons skate park is located in Demere Park, toward the south end of the island. Its sister park in Brunswick is at the North Glynn Recreation Complex. Each park has a different design and features for young skaters as well as the more advanced. Both parks include plaza elements such as stairs, ramps, rails, and ledges in addition to half pipes and bowl sections.
