Green Springs Is America's Dopest Dock Park. Wait... What's A Dock Park?By: Grant Marek
Yes, you've been to a waterpark.
Maybe even the Greatest Waterpark in America.
But have you ever been to a... Dock Park?
Well, thanks to an 80-year-old Korean War Vet now you can at Green Springs in New Bern, North Carolina.
Built in the 1970s, Green Springs (directions here) is a timber-frame park built at the end of a dock overlooking the Neuse River that's packed with summertime water awesome, from ziplines and diving board that'll send you directly into the river, to a 4-story tower that you can Cowabunga off of and into the waters below.
And because the dock happens to sit on the Korean War Vet's property, the whole thing is 100,000,000% free.
