This park is a great place to go for bikers, walkers, and runners alike. I love going to this park to run around the trails, it's beautiful and very relaxing. Personally, I prefer Burke lake which is about 20mins away from this park but they are both very nice.

A stream valley park with a trail that loops around Lake Accotink and includes part of the cross county trail. Has a family area with a beautfully maintained carosal, miniature golf, dock, paddle boat and kayak rental and a snack bar. Once a month during the summer, a band will play in the evening.

This is a lovely park for taking long walks and medium long hikes. There are trails/bike paths that are paved or leveled and finished with gravel. There are smaller trails that wind back through the woods. It also is good for biking. The lake is very pretty, and there are nicely developed picnic areas.

My office recently had our 2nd annual pig roast here and it was great! The large pavilion that we reserved had restrooms and was covered which could save your event although we didn't need that. There is a lake, marina, mini-golf, and other activities at the park. It's surprising that this park is so close to the city. You don't... More

Close to town, good walking trains, boat rentals, and free entrance. If you want to take the kids out for a day, it's great. I wouldn't drive for hours to get there as it isn't worth the trip. But for a local park its good for a day's outing.

We were married yesterday at Lake Accotink. The Park Service Rangers and workers were very helpful and accommodating. After the service and while the caterers were setting up, guests took walks, played mini-golf, played on the beach and road the merry-go-round. It was a perfect day and it appeared that everyone had a great time. Thank you.

Hiking trails are great fun, but the rest of the part leaves much to be desired. It always seems to be messy and out of sorts. It is a public park, so I can't expect it to be the Shangri la of parks. I would not dare go into the water, let alone let my dog drink out of it.... More

There's nothing wrong with this park. If you live in Springfield or Burke it's a nice enough community park with a pretty lake, picnic area, carousel and running/biking trails. I used to work near this park and would come to walk during my lunch break. My only concern was that the park was relatively empty at this time and sometimes... More

Nice little park for children of all ages. Pretty lake with boats to rent. Nice play ground and a Merry-go-round.

I lived near this park for about 3 years. It is my place to go running, and the trails allowed me to go several miles and to loop around the park for longer runs. The mixed improved/unimproved trails around the park get quite wet/muddy after the rain but are passable. The marina and play areas are ok, my 4-5 year... More
