It’s that time of year again- birds chirping, flowers blooming and getting that extra hour of sunlight. Spring is here. If you are looking for a quiet day at the beach but want to avoid the traffic on the Bay Bridge or the long lines to get food on the Ocean City Boardwalk look no further than Sandy Point State Park.
Sandy Point State Park is located right before the Bay Bridge. The beach is located on the Chesapeake Bay and provides over 700 acres of land for one to relax.
From October to April pet owners can even take their pet to the park. Dogs and other animals are allowed to swim and enjoy the bay water. They even have places for animals to drink water and stay hydrated throughout the day.
Sandy Point State Park offers crabbing, fishing, hiking, areas to lie in the sun, camping, having a picnic or even renting a boat for the day. The park has extensive coastline if one wants to run on the beach or wants a more private place to bask in the sun.
The Park has many policies on recycling and ensuring everyone throws away trash. The park staff wants to not only keep the park clean but helps maintain the Chesapeake Bay. They try and do little things like offer more trash cans or have “trash days” where locals can go and help clean up trash. The Park wants to do as much as possible to preserve the Bay and all the wildlife that lives in it.
Sandy Point State Park is a great place to getaway and enjoy a beautiful spring day with some friends, family or even take a lunch break with your co-workers to get outside and appreciate the warm weather.
