This is a great place for the entire family on a summer day. A large pool with various slides is enticing. A snack bar with a number of tables caters to the crowd. A set of batting cages (high, medium and low speeds) captures the imagination of future major leaguers. And a miniature golf course gives hope to those interested in the PGA or just having fun. The course is nicely built with holes set on a sloping terrain in the midst of cascading water. Moderate prices for any of these attractions makes the park family friendly.

I come here several times a summer with my kids and it is always a fun time. There are three pools, including one large general-purpose pool, one shallow pool for toddlers, and one set aside for lap swimming only (my personal favorite). Children can use the lap pool only when accompanied by an adult. The lifeguards are friendly and well-trained. There are two waterslides and there is a big splash zone with a huge bucket that dumps water at intervals. There is also a snack bar with your basic pizza, chicken nuggets, and french fries. Prices for pool entrance are reasonable. Outside the pool area, there are also a batting cage, a large picnic area, and a wonderful mini-golf course. The mini-golf is nicely landscaped and has plenty of shade, which is all important for our hot Virginia summers. All in all, a nice day out.

I've only visited for the walking / biking trails (rather than the activities) but am always surprised by how peaceful the park feels (even though it runs along Wilson Boulevard!). It's a great natural get-away very close to Arlington's Orange Line corridor.

Family activities include a water park, put-put course, and batting cages.

My grandsons love going there to play miniture golf. It is a lovely course with multiple grass levels, streams & waterfalls. It is beautifully landscaped with flowers, bushes & trees, so it is a nice break from the heat of the sumer.

The pool here was recently redone into a water park with an expanded area for little kids that is a splash zone with lots of spraying water, dumping buckets, and fun stuff for kids. There are also some great (and not too scary) slides that kids up to teenager age will love. Super clean and a friendly crowd frequents the pool most days. There is still a lap pool for those coming to exercise that is quite large and you can get a great workout there. What is nice is the park has installed a lot of beach lounge chairs on the deck so you don't have to lie in the sun on a wet towel if you don't want and they also have open-sided canvas shade tents for those of us who don't like baking in the direct sun. Right across the fence is a great mini-golf. Looking slightly worn these days, but it is still fantastic for and 18 hole experience with the kids. My 19 year old still likes to go there. Its claim to fame is that it has the longest hole for mini-golf in the WORLD! I kid you not. It is in the back nine. Lots of fun for parents, teens, or anyone who wants to get their putting up to snuff.
