The fenced-in park has parking available along the street and is situated at the corner of George Mason Drive and Washington Blvd. The streets are pretty busy so be careful when pulling out into traffic. If you live in the neighborhood there are plenty of sidewalks and crosswalks for you to navigate. The playground area includes a small sandbox area for the little ones, a large piece of play equipment for the big kids, and toddler swings. There is also lots of shade over the playground so it was the perfect spot for a hot day. This would also be the perfect park for the kids to bring their ride on toys or bikes with the paved trails around the playground area. There a small fun hoop and concrete area for the littler crowd to play basketball on as well. The indoor bathrooms and water fountain are situated right next to the playground so you don’t have far to go for the potty training crowd.

***Sorry no pics of the toddler sand box, too many little ones…:)

The other part of the park that we explored was the more natural part of the park. We walked up the paved trail to the brand picnic pavilion and found the fire ring area. I have no idea who has the authority to use the fire ring but I do know that the picnic pavilions which there are two of them can be rented. One pavilion can accommodate 50 people and the other 200 people. Click the link at the bottom page for more information on rental picnic pavilions in Arlington County. With the large natural space there a few small trails for the kids to walk in and out of the trees. If want the little ones to learn to take small nature walks this would be a prime spot to take them out in.

Pohick Park in Lorton, VA!

Pohick Park in Lorton, VA!

Yesterday we spend some time in Lorton and came across Pohick Park in the Pohick Estates neighborhood.  This park was a great stop (as it is completed shaded) and it was a hot one yesterday!  Located at the end of the neighborhood, there are a few parking spots, a port-a-potty and a small walking trail leading you to the playground.

Pohick Park is a great neighborhood park with lots and lots of shade! Located in the Pohick Estates neighborhood, this park is located at the end of Pollen Street.  There is a port-a-potty, a short trail to the playground, picnic tables and baseball field.  The playground is a typical piece of playground equipment with climbing areas, slides and tunnels.  Directly behind the tot lot are four swings (two infant swings and two regular).  There are picnic tables, trash cans and a charcoal grills as well.  To  the left of the playground is a baseball diamond.  We played kick ball and soccer, but it was nice to let the kids run around and have a good time.  In the short amount of time we were there, three other families came to let their kiddos run around and explore.  To me, that’s a good indication that this is a fun and friendly park to visit.

As we were headed back to the car, we ran into, literally, ran into a cute little turtle underneath a tree. If you’re in the Pohick Neighborhead or Lorton, stop on by!
