Playground Chalk Not Permitted

Thank you to Morehead City Fire & EMS for helping us clean off lots of chalk markings on the Shevan’s playground Pour-N-Play surface.  We’re asking parents to please be attentive to your children inside the park.  Marking up the playground is prohibited, and cleaning up the surfaces is difficult and time consuming for our employees.
