About First Landing State Park

A vast ecosystem of bald cypress swamps, lagoons, dunes, wildlife and hundreds of species of flora and fauna, First Landing State Park spreads across the urban district of North Virginia Beach in a hidden maritime forest. The 32 kilometres of trails crisscross the park, with more than a kilometre of sandy beaches along the Chesapeake Bay. The spot where English colonists first landed in 1607, First Landing Park holds a valuable place in American history.

Cape Henry is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, as the park covers almost 1,200 hectares, bustling with bikers, hikers, boaters and kayakers on any given day, rain or shine. Four boardwalks stretching over the dunes provide access to the beach, where families can frolic, picnic and play to their heart’s content and even stay overnight in seasonal campgrounds. A boat ramp at The Narrows is the launching point for anglers heading to Linkhorn Bay, Broad Bay and out to the ocean, often in search of the prized Atlantic blue crab, known in local circles as Chesapeake blue claw crab.

The main entrance to First Landing State Park is just off Route 60, also known as Shore Drive, where a helpful information centre stocks maps and the Environmental Education Center supplies information about parks habitats and conservation projects. A secondary entrance from Route 60 leads to trailheads and cabins, with the Trail Center hosting a miniature museum of wildlife displays and the area’s history. The 64th Street entrance is the closest one for launching boats at The Narrows.

The intricate bays and waterways around the park played host to military ships during the War of 1812, and to both Union and Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. Legend has it that infamous pirate Blackbeard once hid in The Narrows during one of his exploits, and 1.6 kilometres of the park’s Cape Henry Trail re-creates an original Native American community. The entire park, built partially by African Americans in the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s, holds the distinction of a National Natural Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
