Belle Haven Park

Editorial Review

Several waterside areas are far enough away from traffic to be enjoyable. The Belle Haven picnic area (nine miles from Mount Vernon) and Riverside Park (1.3 miles from Mount Vernon) offer wide swaths of grass between the road and the water, a number of picnic tables and plenty of room to stretch out. Both offer good vantage points for boat watching.
