Site CLP04A: New Quarter Park

Description

This historic site along Queen's Creek in York County offers a variety of wildlife habitats with its 545 acres and is located approximately 3 miles from historic Williamsburg. This site is rich in both human and natural history; you might spot a colonial artifact or Miocene fossil on your visit. The mature woodland and open meadows provide habitat for migrant songbirds as well as butterflies, reptiles, and amphibians. The tidal creek is habitat for long-legged waders and shorebirds. Be sure to check for nesting osprey atop the channel markers. In the fall and winter scan the creek for wintering ducks. The Williamsburg Bird Club regularly schedules walks in the park.

From CLP04 Colonial Parkway travel east towards Yorktown. Take the Queens Lake exit and go 0.1 miles and turn right onto Hubbard Lane/W. Queens Drive. Proceed 0.1 miles and turn right onto Lakeshead Drive. Follow this road for 2.0 miles to the Park.
