Hampton’s premier park is a 456-acre environmental education and wildlife management facility. Born from borrow pits and garbage dumps, the park is truly a success story of reclamation of our natural resources. From the 10,000 square foot nature center overlooking Sandy Bottom Lake to the elusive creatures that inhabit the wetland marshes, there is something for everyone at the Sandy Bottom Nature Park. A wide variety of education programs can be scheduled with the park. All schools located within the City of Hampton are not charged for these programs—all others can contact us to discuss rates based on the type of program, day of the week, age of the children and size of the group. This park is open daily year round sunrise until sunset. Nature Center Hours: May – September, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.; October – April, 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
