Deep Creek Lock Park

When I started to write up the Great Bridge area, I discovered that the locks have parks associated with them

Located at the juncture of the Dismal Swamp Canal, Gilmerton Cut and Deep Creek (300 Luray Street), the 25-acre Deep Creek Lock Park is heavily wooded park has several overlook towers for birdwatching, elevated walkways through tidal inlet and marsh area, a fitness trail and canoe access to the Dismal Swamp Canal.

Review from the Hampton Roads website: August 02, 2002
"I spent many a summer day here as a young boy. Just enjoyed the cool shade, watching the boats and fishing. It is a nice secret get away. Hiking trails and picnicing for the family. Go spend a day there : )"
Reviewer: D.M. from Virginia beach

There's also a nice story about the park from the April 2002 Virginian Pilot

Special Features:
Hiking, Run/Walk Trails, Fishing, Kayaking, Canoeing,

This lock doesn't have bleachers for watching the boats like they do at the Great Bridge Lock, but it sounds like a nice place to spend some time.
