There is a small parking lot when you turn off of Ashton Avenue and then you immediately get to the tot lot that is covered by bark chips. The tot lot includes two slides, climbing equipment, two regular swings and two infant swings. There is a soccer field and a tennis court as well. Throughout the park there are picnic tables, trash receptacles, and a grilling area. There is a large, open space that is good for ‘free play’ also.

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.
