Mason Neck Park Nice park with wooded trails and bay views. Took the pup swimming here in the calm bay water with a nice sand/mud beach. Pets must remain on leashes and of course clean up after them.

Merrifield Garden Center Dog Park Very dog friendly Garden Center! They have a smallish dog park in their parking lot on the right side that is covered in mulch. It used to have separate sides for large and small dogs, but it seems they just took out the fence in between as well as made it longer and made it one big one. They've done a good job improving it though, now it reaches a tree and they added big bushes and picnic tables.

There's a mailbox with grocery bags where you can pick up poop. They also have dog bowls there, and if people keep them facing upwards then they catch rain water so that's nice. There's always tennis balls in there which is really nice, though some have chunks missing out of them and sometimes they're covered in poop.

The fence is a little less then pristine, but it works and overall we come here a lot. The actual people haven't been friendly though. Usually whenever we go there people pick up their dogs and leave, so that actually really sucks because then we have no one to play with.

Manassas National Battlefield Park, located north of Manassas, in Prince William County, Virginia, preserves the site of two major American Civil War battles: the First Battle of Bull Run on July 21, 1861, and the Second Battle of Bull Run which was fought between August 28 and August 30, 1862 (also known as the First Battle of Manassas and the Second Battle of Manassas, respectively). The peaceful Virginia countryside bore witness to clashes between the armies of the North (Union) and the South (Confederacy), and it was there that Confederate General Thomas J. Jackson acquired his nickname "Stonewall." Today the National Battlefield Park provides the opportunity for visitors to explore the historic terrain where men fought and died more than a century ago. More than 900,000 people visit the battlefield each year.
