Important Notices

COVID-19 & the VBWT: Be Safe While OutdoorsDGIF encourages you to be safe while outdoors. Before heading out, first check with individual sites on the Virginia Bird & Wildlife Trail to find out whether they are still open to the public. Information regarding closures is typically posted on a site's own website. Be advised that some sites, even if still open, may have certain public facilities closed during this time. If a site is still open, maintain CDC social distancing guidelines while enjoying the outdoors.

Description

This 52 acre, mixed use county park provides good woodland habitat for spring and fall migrant songbirds. The park’s lengthy 36-hole disc golf course, found on either side of the open fields, provide an enjoyable walk that may be used for birding in the woodlands.  Look for prairie warblers singing along the margin of the park in the tall shrubs, white-eyed vireos singing in the understory, and orchard oriole and eastern bluebirds along open area edges in summer. The park’s woodlands and weedy margins also attract a variety of colorful insects including butterflies and the furtive forktail, a tiny but colorful damselfly that is quite rare in the southeastern U.S.
