This smallish (26 acre) park offers a variety of facilities: a big water park, batting cages, 18-hole miniature golf course, picnic shelters, and even fishing (catfish and trout) in the park's four acre "lake." The latter, called Lake Cook after a long serving Alexandria city...More

Really nice and well maintained urban park. Had fun with kids and dog exploring this park, trails and the Cameron run(fresh water tributary to Potomac)! Fun time and very convenient to Old Town Alexandria.

Added note: check out Lee District Recreation Center for pool access. It would be a bit cheaper...$12.50/daily for pool, fitness ctr, gymnasium, etc.
