“Perfect Fun day with the kids in the middle of Arlington”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I have always mainly come for the pool and slides, but mini-golf is fun as well. The park also sports batting cages, picnic areas, and I believe there are some sort of trails around the park. Snack bar usually hits the spot, and you can buy season passes but we don't go often enough for that to be worth our while.

“A Welcome Spot for Fun”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

This is a great place for the entire family on a summer day. A large pool with various slides is enticing. A snack bar with a number of tables caters to the crowd. A set of batting cages (high, medium and low speeds) captures the imagination of future major leaguers. And a miniature golf course gives hope to those interested in the PGA or just having fun. The course is nicely built with holes set on a sloping terrain in the midst of cascading water. Moderate prices for any of these attractions makes the park family friendly.

“Great day out for the family”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I come here several times a summer with my kids and it is always a fun time. There are three pools, including one large general-purpose pool, one shallow pool for toddlers, and one set aside for lap swimming only (my personal favorite). Children can use the lap pool only when accompanied by an adult. The lifeguards are friendly and well-trained. There are two waterslides and there is a big splash zone with a huge bucket that dumps water at intervals. There is also a snack bar with your basic pizza, chicken nuggets, and french fries. Prices for pool entrance are reasonable. Outside the pool area, there are also a batting cage, a large picnic area, and a wonderful mini-golf course. The mini-golf is nicely landscaped and has plenty of shade, which is all important for our hot Virginia summers. All in all, a nice day out.

“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.
