Hammill Park is located in Woodbridge, VA and managed by Prince William County Authority. This park is accessible off of Carter Lane. There is a walking trail off of Hylton Ave, across a little bridge to the tot lot, swings, picnic pavilion with grills, as well as one of Prince William Counties Community Pools.
Near the playground area are four swings (two infant and two normal), a covered picnic area with a grill and a community pool. We didn’t take any pictures of the picnic area as there were two groups there enjoying lunch. The playground was an older play area, but our boys still had fun. The playground equipment had three slides, tic-tac-toe, a tunnel to crawl through and some climbing equipment.
**Please Note: The pool is closed for the season**
This pool has fun water slides for the kids for all the kids to enjoy, as well as plenty of shaded options.The pool is open middle of June- middle of August.
This is a nice park for Prince William County residents, especially during the summer months when you are able to utilize the community pool. If you live in the Hylton neighborhood, check this park out.
Marumsco Acre Lake Park in Prince William County includes a lake, basketball court, picnic pavilion and playground area. The lake has a small platform area where you can walk out on and fish from. You can also fish from the shore line. There is a small parking lot that you can park in so you don’t have to park in the neighborhood.
The playground has a newer piece of play equipment that would be great for preschool and school-aged children. Both regular and toddler swings are available. No restrooms at this park but charcoal grills and two (2) picnic pavilions are available right next to the water.
This is a very cute park in the Woodbridge area. One of the bonuses is that it’s located right next to the train tracks. Don’t worry there is a fence separating the park from the tracks. The kids can hear and see the train through the trees. The train is more visible when the leaves are off of the trees though….:)
Harry W. Dawson park is located right off of Hillendale Drive. Although there is not a parking lot, there is plenty of street parking and a paved walking trail that leads you to the playground, swings, cover picnic table and other walking trails. The playground equipment has a few climbing ladders, a slide and a tunnel. Also at the playground area is a swiveling seat, a rocking horse, an infant swing as well as a regular swing and two benches.
There is a covered area with two picnic tables and trash receptacles. To the left of the picnic area are where you can take the walking trails that lead you to the local neighborhoods.
If you are in the neighborhood, this is a nice park to stop, visit and enjoy the shade!
The Fantasy Playground in the Lake Ridge area of Woodbridge is an awesome park. The wood play equipment has a great Fort feel to it with some great climb on, over and under areas of the play equipment. Also no sand or mulch in this park, small pebbles are great for the kids to play on and play with.
The boys LOVED this park! There were running all over the place crawling through the tunnels, forts and tires. There is a great area where the monkey bars and rings are made for the shorter crowd. So no need to hold them up when they try to make it across. There are a couple tight spots where I had trouble getting my 5’7″ frame through when the boys asked me to follow. I think I would of tried it even if they didn’t ask me too, it’s just that neat. There are plenty of spots to sit and watch the kiddos play throughout the equipment as well.
This is a pretty awesome park especially since it breaks the mold from the other parks in the area. There isn’t much shade around the park so during the hotter days it gets pretty warm. Also parking is pretty slim during the summer months since the park shares a parking lot with a community pool. But there is plenty of street parking. Since there are no restrooms at the park don’t fret there is plenty of public restrooms in the strip mall near the park. If you live in the Woodbridge area I would absolutely check out this awesome park!
Occoquan Park is a neat litte park by the Marina. A fence completely seperates the park from the boat slips but the kids get to watch the boats go up and down the Occoquan River. The park includes a small picnic pavilion, small piece of play equipment, and both types of swings.
The park doesn’t have a sign but it does have a small parking lot. There is a little bit of shade around the equipment but it does help that it’s close to water with a nice breeze most of the time. There are no restrooms at this park but Historic Occoquan is just down the road with plenty of public restrooms and places to stop and eat.
This is a small park but the kids had a great time checking out the boats. If you live near Historic Occoquan or near the marina in Woodbridge you should check it out.
Last week we checked out Lancaster Park in Woodbridge, VA. I was pleasantly surprised when we pulled up to the Prince William County park which is located near Woodbridge Middle School. The park had brand new equipment for both younger and older children.
*****The address on the PWC website and sign are incorrect*****
The park has two sets of play equipment and both types of swings. There is a picnic pavilion, volleyball and basketball court, and horseshoe pits. The park does not have any restrooms but there is a little bit of shade around the equipment.
My boys really enjoyed the park and were pretty excited about the big slides. If you live in the Woodbridge area around the Woodbridge Senior High School you should check out Lancaster Park!
Today I was in the Woodbridge area scoping out some neighborhoods for a client and on the way we stopped at several parks. Our first stop was Lake Ridge Park & Marina. The park overlooks Occoquan Reservoir and has a 9-hole golf course, mini golf course, playground, marina and hiking trails.
We loved this park. The boys had a great time sitting down by the dock watching the fish and geese then hiking on the wooded trails. After lunch we walked over to the playground along a dirt trail. You can also just park by the playground which is down from the Par 3 golf course and right next door to the mini golf course. The mini golf course was not open due to maintenance. The playground didn’t have much shade over the equipment but there is shade for the kids to get out of the heat. Restrooms are located down by the marina. At the Marina you can rent paddle boats, canoes and fishing boats for a fee. Along with the rentals there is a snack bar. There is a lauch ramp for personal boats and you just pay your lauch fee down at the Marina. No swimming is allowed in the Reservoir but you can catch and release fish.
We loved this natural park. The Lake Ridge area of Woodbridge is a great place to live especially with the great natural parks in the area.
Keytone Park is located amongst a neighborhood in Woodbridge, VA. The park doesn’t have a sign but when you drive down Keytone Road it’s located in the cul-de-sac across the way from single-family homes.
The park doesn’t have much shade in the way of trees but there is an umbrella on the equipment. There are both types swings but no restrooms at this park but plenty of grass and a picnic pavilion you can rent from the county.
I was pleasantly surprised with this park. The equipment was in great shape and the grounds were clean. If you live off of Dale Blvd or in Woodbridge check out Keytone Park!
A few months ago we headed out to Woodbridge, VA to check out Veterans Memorial Regional Park! This park has something for everyone. The park sits next to the Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Prince William County and has lots of natural hiking trails. The Veteran Memorial Park Community Center is part of the park as well.
In addition to the cute little playground, the park has a pool, rental picnic pavilions, horseshoe pits, skatepark, baseball, softball, soccer, football fields, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. The recreation center also includes indoor basketball court. The playground was in good condition with a small piece of equipment, toddler and regular swings. Restrooms are available inside the community center right near the park and porta potties are located throughout the park.
The Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail runs through the park and a trail entrance is just off the main road that runs through the park. The trail head is marked by the green square on a post. It was a nice hike but I would not recommend taking a wagon or a stroller on the path.
This was a very nice park with many things to do. If you live in Prince William County or if you’re looking for a new place to hike check out Veteran Memorial Regional Park in Woodbridge, VA!
