In the midst of all this hustle and bustle, are two oasis of quiet, Mason Neck State Park and Mason Neck National Wildlife Refuge. Mason Neck National Wildlife Refuge was the first federal refuge established specifically for the (then endangered) Bald eagle for the protection of their nesting, feeding, and roosting habitat for the Bald eagles. Mason Neck State Park offers family friendly hiking trails, picnic areas and playgrounds.
