Town Parks and Facilities
The Town of Occoquan operates a free kayak launch ramp and two municipal parks within the Town’s limits: Mamie Davis Park and River Mill Park. Both park locations host a variety of community events and family functions throughout the year. While the kayak launch is free to all users, event permits for the parks are available for a fee through the Town.
Mamie Davis Park
205 Mill Street
Occoquan’s Mamie Davis Park was named in honor of the late, long-time resident and town official, Ms. Mamie Davis. Located at the intersection of Washington Street and Mill Street, this small, grassed, and shaded public area features a gazebo, and connects to the town’s public boardwalk and pier. It is often used as a setting for weddings, receptions, and other events. More Information.
