Signs of spring at Leesylvania State Park

Residents of Northern Virginia hit the beach as temperatures broke 65 degrees during the weekend.  Leesylvania State Park, Woodbridge, Va., a historical park  tucked along the Potomac River, offered something for everyone.  Dogs pounced on balls, children dug in the sand and fisherman snagged catfish from the pier.

Hiking trails range from a path along the river to a hill-side climb to awesome views trickled with history. The Lee and Fairfax families had lived in the area but only a two-story fireplace and chimney relic remain.  An iron pulley wheel from years gone by is showcased on the beach as a reminder of the nautical life of the Neabsco Creek, Powells Creek and Potomac River.

A $5 cash admission fee was charged per vehicle to enter the 542 acre park with a boat access, rentals, and grills galore.  It was worth the price to see the sun light up the sky with brilliant color to remind everyone that spring is right around the corner.

Did you ever visit Leesylvania State Park?  If so, feel free to share your experiences.
