Terrapin Park sits on 276 acres of Bay front land north of the Kent Island Terminus of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The park includes over 4,000 feet of shoreline and 73 acres of wetlands, making it a destination for nature and wildlife enthusiasts. From the two observation blinds which border the tidal ponds, herons, ospreys, swans, turtles, bullfrogs and a variety of songbirds can be seen.
The park is open from dawn to dusk.
A current Beach Permit must be displayed by all vehicles parked at Matapeake Clubhouse and Public Beach, Terrapin Nature Park (including area designated on Log Canoe Circle) and designated parking for Ferry Point Park.
