Lake Anna State Park...Things to Do

Spring is definitely in the air.  Makes you want to get outdoors to enjoy the weather, the changes in the landscape, and that sense of renewal as the days begin to warm up.

It seems that there is always something one can do at LAKE ANNA STATE PARK.  Here are some suggestions that you might enjoy. Why not take a nice hike around Old Pond Trail or join the walking program if you would like some company. Volunteers are always needed.  Perhaps you might like to take this opportunity to learn what needs to be done and how you can help.

We are so fortunate to have this great park close at hand.  Be sure to make the most of it.
