  • Beautiful park, designed off of The Wizard of Oz! My kids had fun and so did I! Also the ground of the actual playground felt wonderful on the feet! Most ground you walk on is hard and flat. This ground felt soft and airy. Had no problem running around behind the kids on it! It felt so wonderful! Be prepared though, cause the bathrooms aren't the cleanest. The immaculate playground makes up for it, though.
  • A nice big regional park near the DC area. Is really big and has a lot different options like a playground, a coorusel , a small mini train ride (which right now is not working as the track were broken and they do not have an eta on when it would be fixed), A farm, camping spots, few trails and lot of picnic table and spots. If few things are improved this could surely be the best regional park around. Best part is entry is free. Hence that is a good part. Waiting to experience the Christmas lights in this park.
