With a population of about 15,000 and home to the gated community of Compass Pointe, Leland is a newly thriving North Carolina town, robust in energy, while retaining its small town personality.
Just a short drive from several spectacular Brunswick County beaches and just across the Cape Fear River from Wilmington, the town is modernizing before its residents’ eyes. Leland is a town with colorful history and natural charm, rich with shopping centers, boutiques, restaurants, and world class golf. Launch a kayak at Sturgeon Creek Park, Leland’s first water access, picnic at the eight-acre Leland Municipal Park, or take in a concert or an art exhibit at the Leland Cultural Arts Building. Located in the heart of Southeastern North Carolina, Leland boasts a budding reputation in the region.
