My husband and I went here for a baby shower, and we had never been here before. We were amazed at how big the park is! It's pretty well-maintained, though the bathrooms could use some extra attention. There's a carousel and a lake where people were putting in kayaks and paddle boating. Looks like there are places to run, too.... More

Great place to see nature get some exercise and enjoy being outdoors. The trails are easy but also good for working up a nice sweat

Like going for short hikes on the trails, they are well maintained yet looking natural. There are good views of the lake from the trails and a few stops to rest. There is a small island on the lake where a wide variety of birds congregate at different times of the year. The picnic areas are mostly under the shade... More

I love coming here. The environment is "tranquil." The hiking trails are awesome, the lake is just peaceful.

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
