A sense of place also comes with space to recharge and enjoy nature's wonders. Though Herndon is located in a major metropolitan area, Parks and Recreation has established eleven neighborhood parks that bring nature to virtually every resident's backyard. Herndon is also home to two walking trails, Sugarland Run Trail and the historic Washington and Old Dominion Trail (W&OD).
We offer many interpretive programs. Click here to learn about our nature programs and scout badges. Make plans to be a part of our biggest nature based special event - NatureFest and popular nature summer camps.
