James S. Long Park in Haymarket, VA!


Last week we headed out to James S. Long Park in Haymarket, VA. Located in Prince William County, the regional park is spread out over many acres and includes trails, baseball fields, soccer fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, several different picnic pavilions, an equestrian ring, equestrian friendly trails and grass equestrian area. A small Gainesville Library is also located on the property. The park is located just down the road from the communities of Piedmont, Westmarket and Dominion Valley.

Address: 4600 James Madison Hwy, Haymarket, VA 20169

There is a playground in the park that offers two different pieces of equipment. The playground is partially shaded by a large tree near the equipment. The playground sits higher up on a small hill where you can overlook all the ball fields. Restrooms are located nearby and you use either the porta potties or the restroom located in the library.

James S. Long Park is very diverse in all the different activites you can do here. If you enjoy geocaching or just like to get out an enjoy nature you can walk along the Carthapin Creek for about 3.5 miles. It’s great for walking, jogging, biking and equestrian usage.

This a great park for the kids and a bonus for the local sports communities!

  1. Dear Sir/Ms;

    I have an archery set with a target. Is there anyplace you know of where I may set it up ?

    Thank you,
    George Fink

    • They are making some changes to the park but you may be able to set up in the back part of the park that backs to woods. Only problem is there is a equine trail system that runs back there. You would be better off at C.M. Crockett Park in Midland. Lots of space for set up including the back of the dam to block stray shots. I know it’s not Haymarket but it’s an option.
