Long Description:
The play structure has two slides, a tower area, and monkeybars. There are five baseball fields, 1 batting cage area, along with many miles of a trails. There is also a picnic shelter. During games, there is a concession stand and the restrooms are unlocked. There is a portapotty in the parking lot near the trail, if you are brave enough to use it.

This park is a good starting/end point for parents trying to exercise with their kids by walking or biking. There is ample parking, and the Accotink Trail runs between here and Eakin Community Park, with play and picnic areas in both parks. There are also a few geocaches along that walk. The trail is mostly paved, with a relatively short stretch of gravel.
