We love to walk along the paths, both beside the Potomac river and the White trail. There is something to see in every season and the time to unplug is peaceful and calming. Learning the times the park is busy with boaters and people in the picnic areas, or golfers, allows you to interact with others who also enjoy the... More

My friends recommended this place and told me that they have a very nice scenery, and pet friendly. The surrounding was clean and people are friendly as well.

I live around the corner from the park. I have used the park many times. Great trails and paved paths for a nice walk. You can pick a wooded path or one that parallels the river. The park is dog friendly. Excellent golf course as an option. The park also has cabins to rent for a nice quiet getaway. Lastly,... More

Over the years as my grandchildren have grown from toddlers now to guys active in late afternoon/early evening sports, I've come to know this park.with its top notch playground and sports fields. This is a community gem

We never use this place enough! The staff at Algonkian Park does a great job of keeping the park clean and looking amazing. The fields, golf course, picnic tables and etc are wonderful here. I need to use this park more! Great stuff!

We regularly use Algonkian's boat launch area for kayaking. It has plentiful parking for trailers. While there are services available all around the park, there are no services at the boat launch area. There are no boats available for rental. For that, you'll need to go to Riverbend Park.

We have a standard poodle who loves this park as we do. Many trails to hike or just walk along the Potomac. Deer are everywhere. Although we don't play golf the course looks nice. Many families enjoy this park on weekends and it's great to see.

This park is popular in warm weather, drawing many picnic fans and fishermen. It offers a boat ramp to the Potomac, picnic tables, pavillions for rental, golf, mini-golf, cottages for rental, and a pool. It can be very busy during warm weather, but it is a nice respite from the congestion of Northern Virginia. My biggest complaint is jet skiers... More
