Widewater State Park

Virginia State Park

The newest Virginia state park, Widewater is located on a peninsula where Aquia Creek and the Potomac River meet. Widewater provides access to both bodies of water. The park lies on non-contiguous parcels surrounded by private property. Two parcels are open for access. The park has a visitor center, picnic shelters, playgrounds, restrooms, canoe-kayak launches and a hiking trail. The park will highlight the area's natural, historic and recreational resources.
