  • Great place! Batting cages open til 9pm weekdays, 10pm weekend.
  • I've been going to the batting cages for years. I assumed the pool only had things for kids, but there are several lap lanes blocked off and an "adult leisure lane" for people who just want to cool off without risking a kid jumping on them. Lifeguards are paying attention and plenty of open lounge chairs. I visited on a weekday though. I imagine weekends are different. I just wish they'd stay open one hour later, so I could potentially get here for a quick dip after work.
  • The mini golf is alright but the course itself could be more fun as it doesn't have all the obstacles and things you might find at beach mini golf courses. The holes themselves could be built a bit better as some of them are very shallow so it's easy for the balls to pop out. The batting cage is fairly typical for an outdoor cage but for those of you who are good hitters, be warned that the fast pitch baseball cage only goes up to a little over 70 mph. For $12, you can get unlimited use per person of all the facilities including the swimming pool for the day.
  • Always took my kiddos their for an annual putt putt game. Great claen pool. Batting cages and a place to grill n chill..
  • My son loves coming here. The mini golf is fun. Batting cage is great and pool when open is also great!

Where to stay in Arlington

If your trip to America's capital city doesn't include a big budget for accommodations, consider staying on the other side of the Potomac River in the county of Arlington. You’ll find a good selection of both expensive and economical hotels inside Washington, D.C., proper, but staying in Arlington county removes you from the big crowds and allows you to choose from a range of budget-friendly inns and motels. This area also offers extended-stay apartments, many located near the Ballston neighborhood's metro stop.
