Town of Duck
The Town of Duck is Dare County’s northernmost community, and one of the most popular resort destinations on the east coast of the United States. Incorporated on May 1, 2002, Duck is also the Outer Banks’ newest town.
Duck – located on the beautiful Outer Banks between the Atlantic Ocean & Currituck Sound – is a sound to sea community and offers visitors outdoor recreational activities, summer events and concerts, watersports, fine dining, world class shopping, art galleries, and a nationally-known jazz festival. Of course, the beach is fantastic and the sunsets are not to be missed!
With the opening of Duck’s Town Park, facilities and soundside boardwalk which extends .62 miles and in 2014 will be completed to connect the Duck Commercial Village, Duck has become the Outer Banks’ most vibrant recreational, cultural, and entertainment center. The Duck Town Park is designed to be a premier community recreational facility enabling visitors to partake in the natural beauty of this 11-acre soundside maritime forest and willow swamp.
Park amenities include a soundside boardwalk, amphitheater, gazebo, boardwalk, public kayak/canoe launch, four-slip boat pier, picnic shelter, playground, and various walking trails throughout the park’s natural habitat. Park visitors can take in an evening summer concert; stroll the boardwalk; have a picnic lunch; or just kick back, relax, and enjoy the park’s natural beauty.
