Located on 463 acres, all the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay area comes to life. Park visitors will discover a wide variety of native wildlife, including muskrat, otter, whitetail deer, turkey, fox, and the majestic pileated woodpecker. The flora ranges from venerable hardwood trees to the native Blue Flag iris, which gives Flag Ponds Nature Park its name.
A short, half-mile hike brings you to the sandy beach or you may take longer trail routes that allow you to experience the beauty of the park. Additionally there are observation platforms at two ponds, a fishing pier on the Chesapeake Bay and a visitor's center with wildlife displays. The whole family may enjoy the day on the broad beach either swimming or hunting for sharks teeth that are regularly washed up on the shore.
