Plan A Trip To Huntley Meadows Park

Huntley Meadows Park is the largest park operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority. The park features a visitor center, a beaver-created wetland with boardwalk, wildlife observation platforms, and an interpretative trail system. The park is home to abundant wildlife and is known for attracting many birds, amphibians, and plants that are considered less common in the region.

In 1978, beavers built dams on Barnyard Run in the park and created the most important non-tidal wetland still remaining in Fairfax County. Since then, the park has been at the forefront of wetlands protection, environmental education, and wildlife viewing in the county – the park’s ADA accessible wetland boardwalk has become a destination point for thousands of families and nature lovers.

As it were, some of the best wildlife watching in the Washington area can be enjoyed here. The half-mile boardwalk trail and observation tower offer visitors excellent views of beavers, frogs, dragonflies, and herons. Huntley Meadows is well-known as a prime birding spot with more than 200 species having been identified in the park.
