About this Park
This newly renovated grassy 12.5-acre park features two playgrounds (ages 2-5 and 5-12) that feature a obstacle balance course, rock climbing and play towers with slides. The park also has a multi-use field (permit takes priority), a soothing stream, a dog park (closes at 8 p.m.), picnic areas with seating and nearby access to Four Mile Run, W&OD and Custis Trails. Make sure to check out the boundary marker of the original District of Columbia.
Before your next park outing, learn whether or not your dog should play in the stream.
