Rock Creek Regional Park reviews
I love this place to walk. It's so quiet. This place is beautiful whatever the season is. There's a parking too. more »
Feeling the cabin fever, I decided to visit this attraction on Christmas Eve when it was sunny and weather was in the 50's. Note that Lake Needwood is part of this Regional Park where there are lots..... more »
I love this park so much! It is family friendly, easy access, and appealing to almost anyone. If you would like to bike/ walk, the Rock Creek trail starts here and goes all the way to DC. If you want a family friendly stroll, the loop around the lake is about two miles. If boating is more up your alley, then the lake has two easily accessed put in points as well as a rental facility. The park easily balances the ease of access, convenient utilities, things to do, and feeling of getting away from your daily life. A wonderful place to relax that I frequent regularly and advise others to do the same!
The park itself was really nice and the paved hiking trail was perfect. We happened to stop here when the government outage at the time might have been affecting the park though, the bathrooms were all locked and the portapotty was beyond gross. There wasn't a sign saying whether that was the case, I'm hoping it's not like that all the time. The park itself was really nice though!
