COVID-19 & the VBWT: Be Safe While OutdoorsDWR encourages you to be safe while outdoors. Before heading out, first check with individual sites on the Virginia Bird & Wildlife Trail for any COVID-19 policies or closures. This information is typically posted on a site's own website. Remember to maintain CDC social distancing guidelines while enjoying the outdoors.


Pole Green Park is a multi-use facility with ballfields, picnic areas, playscapes, and community center. A one-mile loop nature trail meanders through the park’s mixed woodlands. There are extensive additional trails for butterfly and bird watching. The edges of the forested trails are densely covered in an understory of holly and other shrubs. Woodland birds are numerous and can be easily seen making use of the food and cover provided by the underbrush and canopy. The newly planted butterfly garden attracts a diversity of colorful butterflies to the park.


From I-295, take Exit #38A/Pole Green Road. Follow Pole Green Road east for 3.9 miles. Turn left onto Pole Green Park Lane. The entrance is 0.2 miles on the right on Pole Green Drive.
