The weather is suppose to give us a short reprieve towards the end of the week so here is a new review of Rolling Valley West Park in Burke, VA. The park is located next door to the Pohick Regional Library and includes many different sport fields and courts. This Fairfax County park offers lit tennis and basketball courts, lit soccer and softball fields and a playground.
***We headed out in June 2014 to check on a comment a reader had left for us. The play equipment is no longer in good shape with several slides taken down and boarded up. Hopefully they will repaired soon by the county. A parent had mentioned they use the equipment after they spend some time at the library.
The playground area is situated right in the middle of the park conviently located between all the sports fields and courts. There isn’t any shade over the park but there are porta potties located in the parking lot. You can always walk over to the library if you wanted to use a clean indoor restroom. The play area includes swings and large play equipment. It has a couple neat features that allow children to slide down parallel bars.
The Fairfax County park site states that they are hiking and biking trails in the park. We weren’t able to get out on the trails this day but we’ve put it back on our list of parks we need to go hiking at when it gets warmer. This park was more of a sports park but the kids still had a great time playing on the equipment while watching the older kids play basketball. If you live in the Burke area near the Pohick Regional Library you should check it out.
