Jones Point Lighthouse

Jones Point Park

Jones Point Park, owned by the George Washington Memorial Parkway, is a 65 acre park right off the Potomac River, south of Old Town Alexandria. The park played a vital role in history for the City of Alexandria as it was one of the largest centers for shipping, manufacturing, and transportation in the nation. The Jones Point Lighthouse was constructed in 1855 and is the last remaining riverine lighthouse in Virginia.

Today, the park offers many recreational opportunities for visitors and families. Playgrounds, basketball courts, and multi-use fields offer up opportunities for sports and playtime while fishing piers, and paddle launches allow visitors to enjoy the Potomac River. There is also a gravel interpretive trail that explores the human and natural history of the park and surrounding region.
