Explore The Huntley Meadows Park

At around 1500 acres, Huntley Meadows is the largest park operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority. It is located in the Hybla Valley of Fairfax County, south of the city of Alexandria.

The park features a visitors’ center, a beaver-created wetland with boardwalk, wildlife observation platforms and an interpretive trail system. It is home to a variety of wildlife including various species of birds, frogs, turtles, snakes, and beavers. The park has over 10 miles of well-maintained trails around the wetland and woods that are great for nature walks, hiking, and jogging. There are benches along the loop if you need to relax and be one with nature.

Huntley Meadows is also home to a nationally significant historic house called the Huntley Hall, which was built in 1825 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and designated as a Virginia Landmark.

Located at 3701 Lockheed Blvd, Huntley Meadows is less than ten minutes from Bucknell Manor and is a lovely place to relax and enjoy nature. There’s lots of free parking and access to the park is free other than a small donation. There are lots of people during the weekend so if you are looking for some quiet alone time, its best to go on weekdays.
