While not what we were looking for in terms of trails and hiking, Winton Woods is a very nice park. There are nice paved trails, areas to fish, canoe and kayak rentals, and opportunities to take instruction for kayaking. The park is divided by the main road. One side of the park is really great for children with a playground, a snack bar, and centrally located bathrooms. The other side, which does not have direct lake access, is great for picnics and camping. It is a little more like a state forest. We would probably return if not for the less than scenic drive to get there. That alone takes the fun out of feeling like you are escaping to nature for the day. We will continue to look for a park with a forest-like feel. So far, Jolly Park outside of Alexandria is top on our list.
