The playground offers a nice array of different equipment for the kids to play on. A school-aged and pre-school aged equipment with are set up inside the mulch based play area. Also there is a neat slide that is set up at the top of small grassy hill that slides the kids back into the playground area. A modern day merry-go-round has the option of sitting and standing and was a hit with my kiddos. There is a large picnic pavilion available for rental and a porta potty near the parking lot.

The best part of the park in my opinion is the access to the hiking trials. You can get on any of the trails and hit the Potomac Heritage Trail that travels up and down the Potomac River and also you can hike over to Balls Bluff Regional Park. Signage is available to point you in the right direction. The trails are all natural trails and not stroller friendly. If you have new little hikers a backpack carrier would be perfect. Most of the trail to a point is flat and would be fun for the walkers. As you get deeper into the park beware that as you get closer to the Potomac there is a straight drop off. Currently right now the trail along the bluff is covered in leaves and slick. We chose to skip this trail only because I didn’t have a second set of hands to make sure everyone stayed safe. This is only the trail closest to the river and there are plenty of other trails for the kids to enjoy.

We did end up hiking over to Balls Bluff Regional Park since it was such a nice day and the trees were gorgeous. If you haven’t ventured to the new Potomac Crossing Park I would highly recommend coming and checking it out!

    We live in town and visited this park last week. Can’t wait to go back and walk all the way through the woods.

    We took our 8 year old for a “hike” on a few of the trails today (about an hour), and the terrain was just right (we wanted to “test out” what he could manage before hitting Old Rag, etc)… The playground is the typical Ashburn/Leesburg neighborhood playground, but very new and clean…

    I would love to plan my daughter’s birthday here. Do I need to make a reservation for the pavilion?

      Hi Stephany,

      I would contact the Loudoun County park authority because they do charge a fee to reserve the pavilion. You can take a gamble on that day but it may already be reserved. Hope this helps. Kamber
