In early June, I saw a hawk, a turtle and white-breasted nuthatch birds. If you come to Ellanor Lawrence park via Walney Rd. & Route 28, the 1st stop is the parking lot near the Mill. There is a pond for fishing (not sure what you could catch - it's quite small), and plenty of gravel-lot parking, picnic tables and the trail network to start. From here you are actually about 1mi. (via the trails) to the visitor's center, which isn't marked on some FaIrfax County Park Authority maps. This park is a gem within a very urban area. I won't lie - you can still hear highway noise from Route 28 and Interstate 66, but it is a wonderful place to visit to enjoy some peace and quiet.
