2018 RAM 1500: The Top Pick-Up Truck For Springfield VA Drivers


Lake Accotink Park is a popular attraction for Springfield VA residents and visitors to the Springfield VA area. Spanning over a massive 493 acres, this widely visited destination features a 55-acre lake, vast wetlands and streams and unique views of marsh life and water fowl. The Springfield Park offers year-round activities including biking, fishing, kayaking, canoeing and pedal boating. There's a four-mile loop, natural-surface hiking/biking trail for Springfield nature lovers, along with a miniature golf course and an antique carousel, ideal for Springfield youth. In addition, the Springfield park offers pavilion shelters and picnic areas with grills.

The Holiday Wagon Rides at Lake Accontink, which will be held on December 8, 2017 are an annual favorite for Springfield residents, who can enjoy a horse-drawn hayride through the park and even take pictures with Santa Claus during the event. The park is also frequented by nature enthusiasts, hikers and runners during the cold winter months. However, the Springfield park's boating, fishing and canoeing activities are by far its most popular draw.
