Today we visited Brown’s Chapel Park located in Reston, VA in Fairfax County. The park is located near Lake Newport one of the four lakes in the Reston area. Brown’s Chapel Park is located off of Baron Cameron Road and Brown’s Chapel Road across from the Lake Anne Plaza.
The park includes a small tot lot, baseball fields, basketball and volleyball courts. It also has plenty of areas to exercise including paved and natural trails that are part of the trail system that runs throughout Reston. Restrooms and picnic tables are available as well. Brown’s Chapel can be rented for meetings and small gatherings.
Lake access is available for fishing and hand carried boats. Single family homes, townhouses and condos line most of the shore of Lake Newport but trails weave in and out of the neighborhoods and have plenty of shade on hot days. Also this is a great place to take the family geo-caching.
The area is beautifully wooded and the kids had fun walking trails by the lake and through the wooded neighborhoods. Markers are located along the paths with mileage for each pathway. Numerous maps are available online for the different sections of Reston. The North Point Map highlights the different paths in and near Brown’s Chapel Park.
The park is a great place to take the kids for some exercise or just a leisurely stroll along the trails. Once you’re done you can walk over to the Lake Anne Plaza for something to eat.
