Occoquan Regional Park

Gear Up for a Perfect Day Outdoors on the Occoquan

Enjoy 350 acres of outdoor recreation at Occoquan Regional Park in Lorton, Virginia. The park’s crown jewel is the brand new River View at the Jean R. Packard Center - A premier event space for up to 300 seated guests, featuring the 1608 room, and interpretive foyer depicting John Smith's voyage on the Chesapeake Bay. Take a stroll along the waterfront plaza, and pop into Brickmakers Café for lunch or rent out our large group pavilion. Looking for a little fun and exercise? Our 5k loop trail is a perfect walking tour of the park. Meanwhile, get in a few hacks at our batting cages or rent a kayak and enjoy a day on the water!

Visited countless times and each time I fall in love more.

Visited countless times and each time I fall in love more. Just discovered the 5k trail, batting cages, numerous shelters available for rent as well as the kayaks for rent. The trail is very well paved and overall pretty level. The staff have always been friendly and willing to guide, ask questions, or whatever it is that I’ve needed. The new venue is beautiful inside and out. Can’t wait to try the Brickmakers Cafe on my next visit!

The new facilities are beautiful

The new facilities are beautiful, the River center is absolutely gorgeous. We visit this park about three times a month. The boat ramp is small but nice, and stays busy. We have rented kayaks from this location, they also have paddle boards. It is right up the river from Old Town Occoquan, which makes for an easy and scenic paddle. There are a number of soccer fields and a softball field here as well. The pavilions are well-maintained and can be reserved for events. My children enjoy the trails up the hill from the event center for going on their "nature walks."

Perfect for every occasion

This is one of my favorite parks in VA. It's perfect for every occasion. I've gone here to study on the weekends, taken the pups on countless walks and runs and hosted numerous sports events here for my grad school class. I absolutely love that they've finished the river walk and opened the cafe. This park is true gem and I will always stop by when I come visit VA.
