“Nice place to kill some time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

My kids love to walk around the old buildings here (smoke house, remains of an ice house, etc.). There are nice hiking trails through the woods, and a little nature center with a few animals (snakes, toads) and hands-on exhibits (touch snake skins, microscopes, etc.). They occasionally have relatively low-cost children's classes as well. A nice place to go for an afternoon of nature.

“Good athletic fields”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This review is for the athletic fields of Ellanor C. Lawrence Park, which are located off Route 28 a couple miles from the park headquarters on Walney Road. The fields have to be reserved. Reservations can be made either on line or by calling a telephone number--see the Fairfax County Park Authority web site.

Regarding athletic fields, this is a fairly impressive complex. The park has baseball, softball and soccer fields that are well maintained, plus fitness stations, fitness trails, an outdoor kiddie play area and hiking trails. Portable toilets and trash receptacles are available. Lots of parking is available.
