Located along the Virginia shore of the Potomac River just seven miles from downtown Washington, D.C., Turkey Run Park contains over 700 acres of mostly forested land. Visitors to the park, which is administered by the George Washington Memorial Parkway, discover a quiet refuge from suburbia containing shaded picnic areas, access to miles of hiking trails - including the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, and a surprisingly diverse community of plants and animals. Nestled atop the wooded hills of Turkey Run Park are three picnic areas. Picnic areas include tables, trash cans, and restroom facilities. There are no shelters. Grilling is permitted in the park, however, you must provide your own grill and artificial fuel source. Ground fires are prohibited.
