“First Visist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Beautiful setting, local argument going over the highest points in park used for ballparks and now demanding night lighting, which will be 100ft above normal outdoor ball field lighting, disturbing the surrounding residents? Not well PLANNED for all the new homeowners coming to this beautiful country area! Look forward to visiting this park again, but not nearly as useful to us as Ida Lee in Leesburg, NO INDOOR POOL FACILITIES that we could find, all outdoor?!?!?! SAD.

“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.
