“Another great park with many activities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

At Cabin John, a visitor can stop by the nature center, play tennis indoors and out side. The children can play in the playground that is popular, ride a mini train, go ice skating year around, and enjoy the plants and trees.

The park has a great playground and a train that travels around the park. Best for very young children

“Great local park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

What's not to like? Plenty of equipment and room at the playground. Nice dirt trails through the woods. There's even a train ride during seasonable weather.

“Great playground”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We stopped here for a picnic lunch and to let the kids stretch their legs in the middle of a 5 hour road trip. We only visited a small area of the park, namely the playground area, and it was fantastic. There were several different play areas suited to children of all different ages and capabilities. The playground equipment was also different from the usual swing sets and ordinary slide/claiming features, though these were here too. The playground area is also nicely shaded and there were picnic tables to sit at. The different play areas are spread out a bit, which makes it a bit hard to keep track of multiple children, but also makes it fun for them to travel to each different area. We spent about an hour or so here and during that time, not one but two different ice cream trucks cam through. Naturally the kids liked it, but its a bit annoying for parents sometimes, so just be aware of this possibility when you visit so you can be prepared to either have cash or not!

“Good Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

It's a park. Not supposed to be fancy - just a nice wooded space for kids to run around. There's plenty of play structures for big and little kids alike, picnic spaces for the family, and the Miniature Train ride.

To the last point: it's fun, but it gets crowded. Check the park website for operating times, and try and go early.
