Great Bridge Lock Park

Great Bridge Lock Park is a hidden Gem in Chesapeake.  Located along the Intracoastal water way, it is where the fresh water of the Albemarle Canal meets the salt water from the South Branch of the Elizabeth River. Great Bridge Lock Park is named for the Lock run by US Army Corps of Engineers.  The park is just off of Battlefield Boulevard right past the Great Bridge Bridge. (Yes, it is really called that.).

One of the things I love about Great Bridge Lock Park is how the light dapples through the leaves on the trees and softens the light that shines through. It sits right alongside the Atlantic Yacht Basin. On one side of Battlefield Blvd, you have the locks and the boat launch.  On the other is the new Great Bridge Battlefield and Waterways History Museum and Visitors Center. You can take the kids to the playground or even bring a couple of crab pots and catch your dinner! It’s a great area to spend an afternoon walking around and taking a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life!

Have a look at some of the families I have worked with at the park recently.  I hope you like what you see!
