Rose Hill, with its close proximity to numerous free parks, lakes and marinas by the Potomac River, offers residents and visitors ample opportunities to enjoy fishing, hiking, biking and boating.
Visit the largest park in Fairfax County, the Huntley Meadows Park, just minutes from Rose Hill, with wetlands, wildflower meadows and a forest. One of the best sites for bird watching, with over 200 species sighted, this park has a boardwalk and observation tower. Watch frogs, beavers, herons and dragonflies in the 1,425-acre park. The park permits dogs on leashes in most areas outside of the boardwalk.
For a day out with family, try Lake Accotink Park with its 4-mile loop around the lake, mini golf, carousel, marina and playground. In the fall and spring, rent paddle boats for just $5 an hour. This park allows dogs, so bring your pet
along for a good walk around the lake. On Friday nights in the summer, enjoy the performances of local bands in the park.
