Camden Causeway Park

One of the first parks I checked out when I moved to Elizabeth City was the Causeway Park. My first impression was about as positive as my opinion of the second Transformer’s movie. I got out of the car, saw a sign instructing people not to be litter bugs. And then right next to that sign was a formidable pile of garbage.

The trees do what they can to clean up, but the Causeway Park does tend to be litter prone. That said, I’ve found it to be a great park. It’s humble. It’s a small tract of land with boardwalks over the swampy shores of the Pasquotank River.

What I really like about this park is its diversity. As the seasons change, every visit uncovers new leaves, new flowers, new colors, new insects and new lessons.

The Causeway Park is my ego-check. Every time I think I’m starting to get knowledgeable on the local flora, the brisk walk through the park reminds me of how much I have left to learn. (A lot).

It’s a small park, yes, but full of discoveries.
