  • I have taken many morning walks at Windsor Castle. Though you can feel alone there are other people there and you see them occasionally. The roller kayak launch is a great thing to use and gets you on...  more »
  • We visit here often to walk and enjoy the park. They have a great dog park, a nice walking trail, and the historic house is beautiful.  more »
  • Great place to walk and enjoy the environment. Buildings are being restored so not an opportunity to view inside. Be sure to take the walkway over the marsh.  more »

  • Nice small park with a fenced dog park and a few trails. I can't speak for the trails as I did not walk them but the picnic tables and shaded areas are nice. Stopped to have a quiet picnic on a warm day and it was great.
  • We loved this park so much! Wonderful trails and beautiful natural play equipment! Bring water. There are no fountains.
  • This park is great for a short hike or a run. There is a dog park and two playgrounds. There is also a picnic area with grills that are open to the public. It's about a 45 minute drive from downtown Norfolk, so it's a short day trip. It's worth the drive!
  • A phenomenal place to walk or run while taking in the views of the water which surrounds most of the park. The facilities include the "castle" itself which can be rented out for events as well as a dog park, a bikes only trail, and a recently added natural playground area with a big slide that you simply must slide down! There is walking access to Smithfield Station and the downtown area via two walkways over the water.
  • There are miles of trails to enjoy. There is also a boat launch area for kayaks.
