Exploring the Beauty of Town Creek

September 29, 2023

One thing that sets the Carolina coast apart from other regions of the United States is its unique landscape. Where else can you find lush greenery, freshwater creeks, and endless woodlands to explore? Sure, there are other green areas in the United States, but none as temperate and welcoming as the Carolina coast — and especially the Cape Fear River basin. 

When the team behind Brunswick Forest set out to create an extraordinary community in the area, they knew the natural coastal beauty would be a key part of doing just that. This is the reason why the neighborhoods are nestled among 4,500 acres of natural woodlands. It’s also why the vast array of amenities on offer include so many outdoor options. Residents enjoy biking and walking trails, outdoor dining options at The Villages, nearby golf course, and so much more. Among all of these, the nearby Town Creek is a particularly exceptional part of the Brunswick Forest active lifestyle. 

A Natural Wonderland

Town Creek is a tributary to the Cape Fear River, and Brunswick Forest residents enjoy access to its banks and waters. The creek is known for its natural beauty. It’s home to many unique species of flora and fauna; birds like the red-eyed vireo, yellow warbler, and red-bellied woodpecker are commonly seen in the nearby trees. Town Creek is also home to an unusual collection of plant life. Look carefully, and you’ll see venus flytraps, wild jasmine, Spanish moss, and sassafras, among many others. Brunswick Forest residents who go for a stroll or have a picnic near the banks of Town Creek can enjoy this natural splendor on a daily basis.

Fishing, Kayaking, and Canoeing

The water here is just transitioning from fresh to brackish, making it a special spot for catching an array of fish like largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass, as well as flounder and bluegill bream. Bass, in particular, are often found in estuaries like this, making creek fishing a fun and delicious pastime.

If you’re more interested in floating atop the fish habitats, the kayak launch at Town Creek is where to go. Brunswick Forest has made use of an innovative design to make kayak launching and recovery easier than ever. By utilizing a cradle dock, kayaks can glide into the water and back out again.
