  • We discovered this hidden gem many years ago during a pre-school field trip and loved it! The playground is small, but fun. The nature center always has interesting exhibits and good questions to ask ...  more »
  • The playground, the nature center and the pond are all wonderful. We take our grand-kids there all the time. They all enjoy it, 10 months-12 years!  more »
  • This is a small park with a great little center. They have lots of programs for kids and do birthday parties. There is a play area and trails. Kids can learn about animals and nature.  more »

  • Well kept, nice place for a family outing, a scout adventure, or a school trip. Very nice!
  • Hidden Pond is definitely hidden - it's tucked away in a residential neighborhood, you wouldn't know to find it unless you were looking for it. It's like the other excellent Fairfax County parks - gorgeous scenery, well-marked hiking trails in the woods, and a fascinating nature center that has loads of special events and classes. It also has a traditional playground (unshaded) and a circular parking lot that can fill up quickly during busy times. They host birthday parties for $175, such a great alternative to the standard indoor parties. Come visit!
  • Visited after long time Enjoyed the walk
  • Awesome place for a walk or to see some animals
  • What a great place to take family. I grew up here. The staff and nature programs are amazing. Definitely 5+ stars!
