“Small Local Park With Kids' Activities, Walking Trails”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

I've only visited for the walking / biking trails (rather than the activities) but am always surprised by how peaceful the park feels (even though it runs along Wilson Boulevard!). It's a great natural get-away very close to Arlington's Orange Line corridor.

Family activities include a water park, put-put course, and batting cages.

“Awesome Miniture Golf”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

My grandsons love going there to play miniture golf. It is a lovely course with multiple grass levels, streams & waterfalls. It is beautifully landscaped with flowers, bushes & trees, so it is a nice break from the heat of the sumer.

“Great public pool/water park with batting cage and great mini-golf”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

The pool here was recently redone into a water park with an expanded area for little kids that is a splash zone with lots of spraying water, dumping buckets, and fun stuff for kids. There are also some great (and not too scary) slides that kids up to teenager age will love. Super clean and a friendly crowd frequents the pool most days. There is still a lap pool for those coming to exercise that is quite large and you can get a great workout there. What is nice is the park has installed a lot of beach lounge chairs on the deck so you don't have to lie in the sun on a wet towel if you don't want and they also have open-sided canvas shade tents for those of us who don't like baking in the direct sun. Right across the fence is a great mini-golf. Looking slightly worn these days, but it is still fantastic for and 18 hole experience with the kids. My 19 year old still likes to go there. Its claim to fame is that it has the longest hole for mini-golf in the WORLD! I kid you not. It is in the back nine. Lots of fun for parents, teens, or anyone who wants to get their putting up to snuff.

“What a great place to bring children”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Upton Hill Regional Park. Last day of summer you can bring your dog to the pool. But the rest of the season bring your family and enjoy putt putt golf, pool with slides, batting cage. Plenty of parking, plenty of shade. One of our favorite places to play.
