Rediscover the Charms of Chesapeake
Chesapeake preserves many square miles of protected farmlands, forests, and wetlands. The people of Chesapeake have a wealth of natural areas to explore and navigate within the city. They don't have to travel far to go strawberry picking at Hickory Ridge Farm or set up a tent at Chesapeake Campground. During its fall festival weekends, Hickory Ridge Farm welcomes visitors to pick pumpkins and meet the friendly farm animals. Children love to jump in the farm's inflatable bounce houses, go on pony rides, and explore the corn maze. Head on over to the farm's concession stand to get your hands on hot dogs, BBQ, snow cones, and ice cream. They also sell local produce and homemade pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, hot cider, cider donuts, and delicious jams.
Locals relish a starlit night at the Chesapeake Campground. The campground has amenities for children including a mini-golf course, hayrides, and pony rides. You'll also find tennis and basketball courts when the competitive mood strikes. Anyone looking for adventure can rent canoes or bikes. The campground has a store for campers who need board games, CDs, books, snacks, and camping supplies.
Nature lovers can also spend a quiet afternoon at Oak Grove Lake Park. The park is home to over 65 acres of hardwood forest and wetland habitats. Visitors can enjoy stunning views of lakes, wildlife, and trees. Set up a lovely picnic in one of the park's rentable picnic shelters. The park offers fishing platforms and a 1.5-mile fitness trail for walking, running, and biking.
