Community Event – Little Island Park

July 31, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Come Celebrate Summer with your bleeding disorders community! Join us for a fun filled educational picnic for individuals with inherited bleeding disorders and their immediate family and/or household members at Little Island Park – a 144-acre beach park in Sandbridge, just north of Back Bay Wildlife Refuge.

We have reserved a covered shelter for the day and highlights include: a picnic style lunch, a playground for the kids, games, education, networking with new and old friends, and plenty of time to enjoy the beach (the beach access leads right up to the reserved shelter).

Little Island Park: The park has a 775-foot beach north of the 400-foot fishing pier for surfing and a 2,000-foot beach for swimming and fishing south of the pier. Back Bay, a brackish lake, provides excellent fishing and crabbing along the western border of this unique park. Park highlights: Picnic Area with Charcoal Grills, Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts, Volleyball Court and Beach Volleyball, Playground, Canoe/Kayak Launch Area on Back Bay, Public Restrooms, Seasonal Rental Items: kayaks, paddleboards and fishing poles, Seasonal Concessions, Vending Machines, and Beach Wheelchairs – Three beach wheelchairs are available on a first come, first served basis. Please visit the park office to check one out with a driver license or photo ID.

Event is limited to VHF constituents (and their immediate family and/or household members only). There is no fee to attend.

Thank you to our sponsors: Bayer, BioMatrix, Genentech and Takeda
