This is a unique wetland park filled with the sights and sounds of nature. I love coming here in different times of the year and different times of day because it always has something magical to offer. My favorite time is just before dark on a warm summer day because the marsh is filled with sound of a million frogs... More

It is always a treat to commune with nature walking through this quiet wetlands situated between two major urban streets--Richmond Highway and Telegraph Road. The park is kept up well with walkways through the marsh, allowing visitors to be up close with a variety of plants, birds, and deer.

Huntley Meadows is a tranquil oasis in a part of Fairfax County that is becoming ever-more built up. Its 1000 or so acres include well-marked walkways and paths that lead to a beautiful wetland that houses birds, reptiles, and mammals. It is not at all unusual to see a black snake in a tree or small turtles swimming in the... More

What a semi-hidden treasure. I love going here - you walk on a well kept wide wooden boardwalk in a circle with small optional paths into the woods. The boardwalk takes you over the marsh/grasslands. You are up close and personal with the wonderful creatures in the water. Kids LOVE this park. Very accessible for strollers/wheelchairs. As you are walking... More

It is a great park in the middle of suburban area. It offers different paths to walk. Very enjoyable, specially when the weather is mild. Avoid week-ends when it is easy to find screaming and crying children.

Huntley Meadows is an unexpected marshy area not far from Old Town Alexandria. It's heaven for bird watching and getting a look at marsh animals in the rough. I was stunned to see a bunch of snakes twisted together.
