In the shadow of our Nation's Capitol, Mason Neck State Park is home to our Nation's proud symbol, the Bald Eagle. It protects habitats that help eagles and other wildlife thrive. The park also offers programming that introduces future generations to the need to protect such great places and offers acres of outdoor recreation opportunities.

Coca-Cola's America Is Your Park contest and a committed group of volunteers that have been working on winning the Coke grant for three years, has put us in a position to make that a reality. We have been hovering between first and second place for some time.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
There are 4 double voting days coming up – July 4, 5, 13 and 14 – without your hope and an increase it our voting base, our lead could slip away.
Programming is a major part of the park's mission
Maybe Mason Neck is not your most favorite Virginia State Park. Why should you vote for it? Winning this contest will benefit all of our parks with great publicity from Coke. Virginia State Parks is a TEAM and we support whatever park needs it. We hope you will agree.
