Carolina Place: The Carolina Place neighborhood (a national register historic district) was built as a streetcar suburb at the turn of the 20th century. The neighborhood boundaries are Market Street, Burnt Mill Creek, Gibson Avenue and Wrightsville Avenue.
Burnt Mill Creek & Wallace Park: Burnt Mill Creek & Wallace Park form the eastern boundary of Carolina Place. The neighborhood of Brookwood lies on the other side.
Greenfield Park & Gardens: This park, the city's largest, was established in the 1930s around Greenfield Lake, originally a millpond. Plantings here inspired the Azalea Festival, which began in 1948. Under towering cypress and wisteria-draped pines, the azaleas are the headliner attraction, with a supporting cast including camellia, dogwood, redbud, crape myrtle and magnolia. Greenfield Park has picnic areas, a five-mile paved lakeshore trail for running, cycling and strolling; Fragrance Garden, amphitheater, skate park, tennis courts and a concession stand that rents canoes and paddle boats (from http://www.wilmingtontoday.com/Tours...eenfield.html).
