We're busy planning some more great events...

2017 Eagle Festival Was a Huge Success


The May 20 Eagle Festival at Mason Neck State Park was the Park's biggest event of the year.  An estimated 3600 people showed up for a day of shows, demonstrations, booths staffed by environmental organizations, pony rides, a chance to try out a canoe, kayak or stand-up paddleboard, live eagle cam, live band, and food trucks.  Twenty-seven volunteers recruited by the Friends of Mason Neck State Park helped the Festival go smoothly, helping out in the parking lot, the show tents, as costumed character Parker Fox, as greeters and in other important functions.

Mason Neck State Park 

Mason Neck State Park is located on the Mason Neck peninsula in southeastern Fairfax County, Virginia. The Park's wetlands, forest, water, ponds, and fields are home to a variety of wildlife, including bald eagles, osprey, geese, ducks, swans, and other birds living on or near the Potomac River, Kane's Creek, and Belmont Bay. 


The Park has hiking trails, three miles of paved multi-use trails, a large picnic area, a playground, a car-top canoe and kayak launch, and a visitor center. Canoe, kayak, and bicycle rentals are available.

The Friends of Mason Neck State Park 
work to conserve, enhance, and interpret the Park's natural, educational, recreational, cultural and historic resources. We sponsor picnics, kayak trips, show-and-tell, volunteer activities, and other special events.
