Jacksonville, North Carolina is in Onslow County and is the 14th largest city in the state. It's home to the largest Marine Corps base on the eastern seaboard. Celebrating and serving the military heroes of the world, both every day and the extraordinary military servants is what Jacksonville does best. The tree city, once a quiet farming community has grown into the business, retail, medical, banking and cultural center for the county. Jacksonville has been dedicated as a "Tree City," a honor from the National Arbor Day Association because of the city's dedication to nurturing its green spaces.
The downtown waterfront park is built on the site of Wantland's Ferry, with bridges on either side of the original ferry site. Still standing at the site is also the historic Pelletier House, maintained by the Onslow Historical Society, which is opened to the public on special occasions. The park is open year-round to the public. About half of the population of Jacksonville lives in Camp Lejeune and New River Air Station.
