  • Such nice and remote trails (despite the geographic location near I-66 and Rt 28). Perfect location for family photos!  more »

  • Really nice local park, and I love running it and walking it. Has a couple scenic/fun features that are cool- the bridge, the stepping stones. But you're right up on the road on one side, and the traffic noise from 28 and the fumes drift over the whole park, so, not really worth a special visit for the nature aspect. The standouts are really the history bits; really dedicated team, but small. I'd say- The history is ok for smaller local school visits, but again, not really worth a special trip from far away. If you're already in the area it's totally worth a visit for a nice short walk though and the folks working there do a fantastic job on bringing the history to life in a version which younger kids might enjoy. Best feature might be the presence of abundant walnuts from the massive, massive walnut trees by the historic house. Those are pretty awesome.
  • As with all Fairfax parks, this is well worth the visit - but it's not quite the star of the park system. There are miles of hiking trails, some flat and stroller-friendly, some more challenging. The small nature center building dates from the 1700s and contains live reptiles, puzzles, costumes and coloring pages for the young folk. There is ample space for parties and picnics. Parking is convenient, and the park itself is close to a major highway.
  • Went here to hunt Pok√©mon with my kids. We really enjoyed the trails and the pond.
  • Great little park for lunch time visits if you are close.
  • Delightful experience. Nice walk.
