“A lot of grass and some cannons. . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I didn't really "get it". . .it was just a lot of grass and some cannons (few statues of famous people). It's nice to memorialize people and things but not necessary to take up that much space to do it. . .

“Well Hidden Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is a great place to take a step back in history and get a good first hand look at history. The visitors center has several good displays that are informative. Worth the time!

“Great Place to Trail Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I have taken my horse to Manassas Battlefield Park to go on a trail ride. This is a very popular place for equestrians to trailer their horses and go on a beautiful ride. There are numerous trails and the property has many acres to ride on

“an oasis in suburban sprawl”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

thankfully, the most important parts of battlefield have been preserved and rescued from suburban sprawl, though local traffic can be daunting, some very good trails, lots of wildlife, history well told by the signage and some of the rangers very astute

“Step back in time.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The guides are knowledgeable and their explanations of the battles make you feel like you were there.Beautiful rolling hills and historic buildings - a rare find in this heavily traffic congested area we live in. Great places when the weather is good to be outside and walk around. We are very fortunate to have history at our back door.
