Located just west of Tryon Palace, this 140-acre park sits right on the Trent River. Lawson Creek Park has two boat launches, restroom facilities, two shelters, island/picnic areas, two soccer fields, two fishing piers, a handicap walkway, one handicap fishing pier, and a walking trail. The picnic area is located at Jack’s Island which contains a walkway with picnic tables, grills and ample parking.

The Lawson Creek Trail, at just under a mile in length, has a great balance of the water and nature of New Bern. This trail is a mixture of wooden planks, gravel and grass that takes you through a winding maze of Lawson Creek Park.
