  • Great place to enjoy the nature, all season. Make sure to walk all the way to the end. Wish some people would respect the nature and refrain from trash. Tranquil, picturesque surroundings 
  • Peaceful park. 1 hour walk, round trip, to get to Great Falls waterfall. Lots of spots for dates, picnics, BBQ's, hikes, etc. You can also rent boats and kayaks here, so that's definitely a good thing. One of my favorite chill spots. The backroads leading up to the park are very fun to drive through the corners, at speed.
  • This is a lovely park that sits right next door to Great Falls Park. The only difference is that there is no entrance fee and no water falls; however, there is the Potomac Heritage Trail which one can walk down and into Great Falls for. The visitor center is lovely with outdoor seating, bathrooms, and a few concessions inside when open and staff was friendly. There is a boat launch ramp as well as canoe and kayak rentals available, picnic tables and grills in some locations.
  • Quick and easy parking and a lot less crowded than great falls park. Do yourself a favor and park here to walk to great falls.
  • Nice park, pretty views right on the water. Lots of tables and room for the kids to play.
  • Very nice facilities at this park. Extensive well marked trails. Nice place to spot wildlife.
