“Pool, fields, park - all great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

My family has been visiting Franklin Park since 2003 & it is a great place to take the kids to play. The pool (which has a fee) is clean, nice & the kids have a blast (byo food, their food is expensive & sometimes sold out). The playground is great too - my two age groups love that their are 2 age grouped play sets. The baseball fields are nicely manicured & make a nice venue for a game.

“Pool review only”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to spend a summer day. There are different areas for different age/ability groups. There are quite a few slides of different sizes and water features in addition to the main pool. The bathroom have changing areas and showers. The staff and lifeguards are friendly. There are ample trash cans and the area is clean and attractive. There are numerous chairs and some tables. The only drawback is that they could use more umbrellas.

“Great Family Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great park with a stocked fishing pond, baseball fields of varying sizes, swimming, tennis, frisbee golf, geocaching, and trails for walking and horseback riding. The park is very clean and the staff members are friendly. There is also an arts center on the property, tot lot, and pavilions for family gatherings. There is a fee for the use of the swimming pool, but every other activity is free.

“Baseball and softball fields reviewed only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We come here for softball games. They have bleachers and fenced in dug outs but without coverings. They have bathrooms & drink and snack machines. It's a large park with an outdoor pool and other sports fields over looking the beautiful Virginia countryside.

“Sledding at it's Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you are ever driving through Western Virginia and want to stop for some fun sledding, or if you live in the Washington, D.C. area and want to get out to sled without the cost of a chair lift - Franklin Park is your answer. Set within the hills of Western Loudoun, Franklin Park boasts hills of all levels perfect for a family outing of sledding. Along with sledding there are plenty of nature trails you can walk. If you have now shoes and want to play a round of Disc Golf - there is a great course which surrounds all the outdoor facilities.
We went sledding on Christmas night - under the moon light and it was so great. They kept the gates open just a bit longer for us - so we could take advantage of the perfect conditions. During the day time we hit the "big" hill and then walked a few of the trails. Such a fun place in the winter time and it's all FREE. A pet friendly park - bring you dog on leash and let them enjoy it as well.
At the hill top are facilities as well as a location to warm up if you need.
