CONNECT NC Bond Projects

CONNECT NC Bond Projects

The Connect NC Bond Package includes $75 million for 45 state parks projects across the state.

The bond projects would enhance the visitor experience by:

  • Offering newer and more diverse recreational experience, such as expanded and upgraded campsites, picnic areas, cabins, trails, day-use areas and facilities;
  • Providing new and expanded visitor centers, classrooms, auditoriums, exhibits and other learning venues and experiences, and
  • Acquiring lands and waters to protect key natural resources for conservation and public use.
