Short Pump Park
Park Notice: Park users will begin to see survey work and erosion control fabric on the gravel trails at Short Pump Park the week of April 27 as we prepare for the paving process, thanks to a federal TAP grant from VDOT. The trail will close for a period of time once paving is underway.
This park includes a dog park, spray fountains, athletic fields, play equipment, picnic facilities, and a restored 1902 two-room schoolhouse.
Picnic Shelter Reservations
Please note, the picnic shelter by the soccer/football field accepts reservations. The picnic shelter by the dog park does not accept reservations.
