Today was an awesome day to head out to the park so we headed over to Trailside Park in Herndon, VA. Trailside Park like its counterpart in Ashburn is located along the W&OD Trail and near the Herndon Centennial Golf Course in the Town of Herndon. The park includes picnic shelter, skate park and playground area.
Address: 1022 Crestview Drive, Herndon, VA
The playground area had plenty of shade even without the leaves being on the trees yet. There is one piece of school-aged play equipment, a ride on car, and balance beam. There are plenty of picnic benches and tables available in the shade in addition to the picnic shelter. The skate park feature was fun for the boys to play in and when the teenagers arrived they were really excited to watch them skate. I was super impressed with the teenagers that were there. They made a point not to smoke or use foul language around the boys and when the boys asked them to do tricks they were more than happy to accommodate them. Kudos to their parents for raising great kids! In addition to the skate park and playground area there is a sand volleyball court. Restrooms are available in the form of porta potties in the parking lot and when we were there they were pretty clean.
We had a great time at this park and will be hitting it up again when we’re in the Herndon area. The availability of the W&OD trail right next to the park is pretty awesome if you like to walk to an area park.
