Superior venue for an afternoon of family fun

Whether just walking the short, or tossing in a line, or pushing off in a small boat or canoe, you're sure to enjoy your time at this park. Although easy to get to, it has the feel as though you've traveled the day to get there. Turn off the cellphone, leave the laptop at home, and come relax for an afternoon!

Kayak Rentals

We rented a kayak at this park, and had a great time on the water. I would recommend coming here any time. The staff is extremely helpful and are always very nice.

Awesome Family Location

As a kid my folks would take us to pohick... we loved it. There were always so many families there... great picnic areas, grill areas and tons of running and trail space. I've never seen it trashy and haven't experienced "loud or unruly" people there but it's a great location.
