This city park in the Kitty Hawk Woods reserve is great for a short visit. They have a very nice boardwalk winding around the park with many native species identified. We especially loved the turtle pond, though it's clear that some people must feed them....More

This is a nice place to walk at after a lunch or just if you need a break from other activities. However, we did do this in July and the heat/humidity combination was a bit much for our 5 yr old. The amount of turtles...More

We love this place. It's a nice quiet change from the beach. We visit the Outer Banks for 2 weeks each summer and come here often. As others have said, there is abundant wildlife - turtles, toads, frogs, crabs, lizards, butterflies, dragonflies, various birds and...More

This park is truly hidden and not advertised, as far as I can see. It's part of a larger preserve, the KItty Hawk Woods Coastal Reserve, that contains a system of water ways linking the woods (an unusual mix of coastal pine/cypress with more in-land...More
