Great for bikers and good for hiking

This park has excellent hiking trails that go for miles. Some are fairly flat and others are good for getting a good workout. It's actually a beautiful park and the botanical... read more

We had breakfast this week under the shelter in the botanical garden at Freedom Park in Williamsburg. It's BYOB (Bring your own Breakfast) of course! If you were flying over that shelter, you wouldn't see it, because the roof is alive--covered in plants! Several different habitats representing those found in Virginia's Coastal Plain have been designed and filled with native... More

This park has excellent hiking trails that go for miles. Some are fairly flat and others are good for getting a good workout. It's actually a beautiful park and the botanical gardens are very pretty. We've been coming here for years and love to hike here, but our favorites are Waller Mill and York River State Park. I think this... More

We attended a reptile show at the park building...excellent speaker and great for small children. Afterwards we took a walk to the slave homes and the kids enjoyed comparing the three. Go Ape was well attended and it sounds like something to do once the kids are older. Pack some water...it gets hot here!

Freedom Park has about 20 miles of mountain bike trails that range from beginner to expert. I was surprised to find a lot of contour in the layout and got some good workouts. If you stay on the basic trails, you won't be overly challenged - mostly switchbacks and steep climbs. There are numerous "features" that are very challenging and... More

Stopped by this park during a trip to Williamsburg. The park is quite cute and we got to see some zipliners having a blast nearby. The botanic garden was quaint, but in desperate need of water. Most of the plants and flowers in the area looked like they were on their last leg, all dried up. It's a nice park... More

Nice little park with huge potential. Has a little botanical garden and nice walking trails. The freed slave cottages are interesting and well done. The GO Ape zip line course ollked like so much fun - we will be back for that. This is a work in progress. Watch this spot!

This is a great park. Bike trails, GoApe and historic site. James city country sure tries hard. They have really done a lot.

I've only ever used the mountain bike trails, but I love the variety of trails they offer. It's beautiful and offers a variety of length and challenge. I made my husband take me for my birthday I love that park so much.

Our last field trip while attending the VA Native Plant Society conference was to visit Freedom Park in Williamsburg, VA. We've not been too interested in the typical tourist places of Williamsburg, but this nature walk was very exciting and we learned a lot from the girl who led it. She grew up in the country learning the names of... More
