Site CSC01: Oak Grove Lake Park

Description

Although this is the City of Chesapeake's newest park, many species of birds and mammals have already been recorded there. Oak Grove Lake makes up about half of the park's 130 acres. Most of the park's remainder is composed of forest that includes dense growth pines, maples, and tulip poplars. The sizable lake and mixed woodland provides an attractive habitat for dragonflies, butterflies, and songbirds.
