Things To Do


Bull Run Regional Park's spacious fields accommodate groups by the hundreds for picnics, camping or special events. The park's scenic woodland and trails offer miles of hiking and solitude. In springtime, acres of bluebells and other wildflowers bloom beside a picturesque, meandering stream. A large outdoor pool is open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Miniature and disc golf are open April through October. A public shooting center, which includes sporting clays, skeet, trap, wobble trap and indoor archery, is open year-round.

The Naturalist Program connects children and adults with the natural world in the Regional Parks. Through guided nature walks, paddling on the Occoquan Reservoir, night hikes, stream and pond studies, and live animal programs, participants gain the opportunity to discover native flora and fauna. Programs are offered in many of the regional parks including Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, Pohick Bay Regional Park, Bull Run Regional Park, Fountainhead Regional Park, Occoquan Regional Park, Algonkian Regional Park, and all Five NVRPA waterpark facilities (in-season only).
