Silas Burke Park located in Burke, VA. Burke, VA gets its name from Silas Burke a 19th century farmer, merchant and local politician. He owned a large amount of land in Fairfax County and built his home on a large hill overlooking the valley of Pohick Creek. This small park includes a small play area, basketball court and soccer field. The park had some sad events a few years ago but when we were at the park we felt completely safe.
Address: 5815 Parakeet Dr., Burke, VA 22015
The play area includes a small piece of play equipment that was in good shape and in complete shade even without the leaves on the trees. It also had a set of swings and a few ride on toys but sadly no restrooms but there is a shopping mall just outside the neighborhood if it’s an emergency. Parking is available in the cul de sac with a very short walk to the equipment.
This is a cute Burke neighborhood park and if you live nearby it can be an easy place for the kids to blow off some steam while being protected from the sun!
