I have frequented this park for couple reasons. One is family/friends picnic, other is children entertainment and walk (exercises) around the trails. If you love animal kingdom this a great place for watch turtles, dears, rabbits, and poison snakes!!!!! Good thing it is free.

The park is littered with civil war fortifications - you can actually walk the trenches and dugouts that were erected during the Peninsula campaign of McClellan. It is the actual dugouts - not reenactments. Also overall its a nice park for picnics, hiking, etc.

One of the best city parks I have been to, very well laid out, large sites, close to many attractions. New reception center. The only draw back is it doesn't have sewage, must dump on way out.

Enjoyed the atmosphere. If you go early enough you can go on the paddle boats and see the animals inside of the club house. Nice trail for walking and running.

Had a good time until it started raining. There were plenty of outdoor activities for the kids. The park is closely located to highway 64 and Fort Eustis.

You cannot launch your boat at the park. They have paddle boats and canoes for you to rent.
