Huntley Meadows Park

View Photo Gallery

Huntley Meadows Park is a rich, natural island in suburban Northern Virginia. Its 1,425 acres harbor majestic forests, wildflower-speckled meadows and vast wetlands that provide some of the best wildlife watching in the Washington metropolitan area. The wetland, carved by the Potomac River, is one of the rarest natural habitats remaining in the county. The Fairfax County Park Authority site contains a half-mile wetland boardwalk trail and observation tower that provide views of beavers, frogs, dragonflies and herons. There are also guided wagon rides, a two-mile interpretive trail system and a hike-bike trail. More than 200 species of birds have been identified in Huntley Meadows. The park’s visitor center hosts dozens of family programs.
