General Information
This day-use picnic area is at the end of Sandy Beach Road and is about two miles from downtown Petersburg. Situated in a small cove, the park has three enclosed shelters with tables, two of them with large stone fireplaces. Low tides reveal abundant sea life and ancient petroglyphs and fish traps in the left-hand side toward the point. There is a play area for children and a sand volleyball court located near the beach. Horseshoe pits are also located there with rentals of equipment at the Parks and Recreation. Restrooms and running water are available

City Creek Trail
This one hour trail starts at the troll bridge at the south end of Sandy Beach Park. Walk can also be started at the bridge along Frederick Sound Drive that goes over City Creek. The trail winds through the woods following the beach with a couple overlooks. If timed right, hikers may see or hear whales in Frederick Sound. Most of the year, boots are not necessary.

Fee Schedule
The three shelters are available to rent by hour or day.
