The Neuse River Trail offers wildlife viewing opportunities, including plenty of waterfowl at the extensive wetlands all along the Neuse River. Parts of the trail are paved and parts are unpaved, as it follows the river's course from Anderson Point Park in the south to Abington Lane.
Anderson Point Park offers a playground, open fields, cottages for rent and shelters. The park is open from dusk to dawn.
