  • It’s a great place! I have been there quite a few times. Every time I go there it feels great. The atmosphere, the landscape around make it more relaxing and enjoyable. If you stay nearby, it’s a great place to do your daily workout-running, jogging or other freehand exercise. I love the place and will definitely visit again soon.
  • Amazing park! I didn't expect it to be so big! But I was so amazed with everything! The tour included such great scenery. I even had a picnic here. Overall I spent a whole day there and still didn't see everything! I would totally recommend to anyone in the area. It's free to get in and park and even free to check out where George Washington stayed. Can't wait to go back
