What's New!

During the winter, the Park was kind enough to allow us access to their Aladdin's Cave of archival documents in the basement of the Sandbanks Park Office.

Many of the over 1000 document pages are now on our website. Here are just the first few files... many more to follow:


Most files are in .pdf format

Coming Soon...

We are working on a complete revision of our website to bring it into the 21st century. We recognize that many users are now getting their information on smaller-screen tablets and smart-phones... our new site will be easier to navigate, feature plenty of maps and hopefully show users everything they need to know about the Park... from its early geology, its settlement history, including its present and unique attractions.

We expect to have the new site available by May 1st, 2017, in time for the sesquicentennial rush!

Do you have any suggestions as to what we should feature? Please let us know!
