Great park. Many trails - geocaching, boating, kayaking the islands, picnic areas on river front, cabins, it's all there for a family to do per their needs.

Excellent and relaxing place in Potomac Falls and Sterling

Very quiet and comfortable place. Very lovely. Great for fishing. It could be crowded on the weekend. There are several trails through the park.

Great park for people of all ages

Great park for people of all ages. Must visit. Had a great time visiting the park with my friends. Lots of shade so you can definitely beat the heat during the summer months. I will be looking forward to visiting in fall and spring. Park rangers are friendly and are patrolling the area from time to time. Plenty of parking available. We visited on a Sunday and still found parking space and also some benches to sit and relax. Park is kept clean with trash can for every bench. Overall had a great time

Beautiful park next to the river

Beautiful park next to the river. Had a great time with friends playing some board games on a sunny afternoon. Plenty of parking spaces, picnic shelters, and trails to walk dogs. A lot of greenery in the area, must visit for a calm picnic day!
