Backlick Park in Annandale, VA!

On one of our park crawling expeditions we headed to Annandale to check out a few parks. One of the parks we stopped by was Backlick Park off of Backlick Road. Backlick Park has lit tennis courts, unlit basketball court, horseshoe pit, playground area, paved and unpaved walking/hiking trailsĀ and no shortage of picnic tables.

The 8-acre park has both paved trails and dirt hiking/equestrian trails. We didn’t make it very far down the paved path since there had just been a large storm and had downed several big trees across the path.

The playground area is surrounded by trees and is handicap accessible. The large piece of play equipment has a ramp system which connects to the paved trail. The only swings available are the toddler swings. A local family playing at the park said that a porta potty is usually available near the parking lot May through October. Around the play area there are many picnic tables in the shade.
