Where are the Ingram Dunes?
The Ingram Dunes are located in the very heart of North Myrtle Beach off of Hillside Drive between 9th and 10th Avenue South. They are east (ocean side) of Highway 17. Several high relic dunes and maritime forest are located on the 9.4 acres land.

In October of 2016 a request by a developer to build on the site was presented to the City of North Myrtle Beach Planning Commission for review and approval. The notification sent shockwaves throughout the community. The proposal involves bulldozing and flattening the property, resulting in a total loss of natural habitat and history. It was at that time that a coalition of concerned citizens sprang into action.
A group of local community members formed Preserve Ingram Dunes in an effort to preserve this unique place. Since 2016 Preserve Ingram Dunes has been working with the owners of the property, The City of North Myrtle Beach, local and national conservation organizations, state government entities, and fellow North Myrtle Beach citizens to purchase and preserve Ingram Dunes in perpetuity as a passive park and nature preserve. They have created this map showing some of the paths and major features of the land. Many of the pathways were established over 70 years ago as the public began walking and enjoying the dunes and maritime forest.
