Appomattox River Regional Park
Time for some exploring of Hopewell/Prince Georges waterways! Appomattox River Regional Park in Prince George County tucked away on River Road offers 3 miles of hiking trails as well as a canoe/kayak launch. We recommend packing a picnic to bring with you on your adventures and to always adhere to all posted signs. After launching your man-powered boat, paddle upstream to discover your new favorite fishing spot, and enjoy the float back to the dock!
The Perfect Picks Flower Farm
Welcome to Prince George County! Conveniently located half a mile off of Route 10 you’ll find The Perfect Picks Flower Farm. This family-owned flower farm has acres of seasonal flowers patiently waiting for your family to cut and make your own bouquet. They recommend bringing your own pruning shears and cutting bucket/basket, gardening gloves, water, and closed-toe shoes. The price of admission allows one adult to fill up one 5-gallon bucket worth of fresh flowers!
