Currituck Heritage Park has much to offer visitors and locals. The park is comprised of 39 acres of lush green lawns, Live Oak trees, and is bordered to the west by Currituck Sound. Within the park, there are many activities both free and requiring admission. Currituck Heritage Park is a public park owned by Currituck County, and operated by the Whalehead Preservation Trust.
The area now known as Currituck Heritage Park was originally part of a 4 mile tract of land running from the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, south to the Timbuck II Shopping Village, and spanning the entire area between the Atlantic Ocean and Currituck Sound. After the Knights both passed away in 1936, the land and the residence (known as the Whalehead Club) sat empty for about three or four years until Mr. Ray Adams picked up the entire property for a mere $25,000! Over the years the property has been owned by a handful of people and corporations, and the amount of land included in the original tract has dwindled to the remaining 39 acres that is Currituck Heritage Park.
There is NO admission fee to enter Currituck Heritage Park, or to use the public boat ramp.
