    Who says you have to take a direct route from one park to another? You could have done a 20-mile loop.

    Theses 3 parks in Vienna VA are adjacent to /across the street from another. You can see the park signs of 2 of them when you turn around and look behind you from the 3rd park sign (Stream Valley). So I rode there twice, and logged them separately to, fro and to again;-)

    Doh! I totally missed the Stream Valley Park sign myself
    Looks like it was one of the rare green/white signs that actually said "Park" in the name. My general rule of thumb was anything on the map that said "Stream Valley Park" probably wasn't a park. Well earned! -Kris

    Default One last park

    Although this Pointless Prize competition ended in March, I wanted to submit this entry anyway.

    I must admit this park was a severe disappointment. There was no grass, no trees, no greenery whatsoever. It was underground, too, so not even any sunlight. And unlike other parks I’ve seen that have been mostly hard surfaces, there were no basketball hoops or tennis courts – nothing at all to use for recreation. Maybe a creative group could make some sort of underground cyclo-cross course out of it; worth a thought perhaps.

    Oddly, though, there were a lot of cars there. I don’t know what these people were doing at this park, but it seemed like it was pretty popular. Beats me.

    So I wouldn’t recommend making a special trip or anything to get to this park.

    I hereby decree that for 2021 and beyond the official hashtag for this will be #parkfinder - please don't use #FS2020ParkFinder any longer.

    Default Pointless Prize - ParkFinder

    My first for FS2021 - Dewey Local Park in Rockville MD which had some fab murals. Note kiddie trailer and rear bike wheel along RH border.

    Today’s park finder: Charles Hill Park in the Town of Potomac, Del Ray, Alexandria. Named for a fallen police officer, it was once home to a racetrack and now has many treehouses throughout.
