Sandy Run Park is one of my top 5 favorite things to do in the OBX. A short, stroller friendly boardwalk trail takes you in a loop around the pond. The BEST part is the turtles though. Hundreds of them! They are used to people feeding them so they swim as quick as their little feet can move them when they see people. If you decide to feed them, DO NOT FEED BREAD! You can buy pelleted turtle diet, or feed fruits and veggies.
We always see lots of wildlife here when we visit. Osprey, little lizards, snakes and dragonflies galore. Every time we go it’s something different!
