About the Park

For over a century, Forest Hill Park has been an attraction for family picnics, winter sledding, bird watching, hiking, and other outdoor activities.

There are gently rolling lawns in the upper area that stand in contrast to steep forest ravines in the lower area, with a stream-fed lake below.

The Stone House, built circa 1843 with granite from an on-site quarry, was once the residence for an old country estate.  The well-preserved structure now features a gallery of historic maps and photographs, an unusual 3-story circular staircase, and many other original features.

The main hall is now reserved for community meetings and is the headquarters for Friends of Forest Hill Park.

As an official historic property, Forest Hill Park is listed on both the Virginia and the National Registers of Historic Sites.
