Bren Mar Park is a 26-acre park in Alexandria, VA. The park has a large piece of play equipment, unscheduled baseball diamond, small picnic pavilion and a natural trail system. The master plan of the park has changed and as of 2011 the baseball diamond is going to be changed into a dog park. The funds are not yet available for the change but once funds are allocated the change will be made.
The park offers an older large piece of play equipment and few ride on pieces. There is some shade around the equipment but no restrooms at this park. The picnic pavilion is small and little weathered but does give some shade. We did hit the small amount of trails and the kids had a good time on the natural surface. Strollers could make it but it would a bumpy ride. Once the dog park finally gets installed, the trails would be a perfect spot to jog/walk with a dog.
Bren Mar is definitely an older park and needs a little bit more mulch and some TLC. The kids still had a great time on the equipment and heading out on the trails. If you live in the Edsall area of Alexandria this little park would be a place to stop and play.
