Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park is Prince William County's newest Civil War Battlefield Park. The 133-acre park features interpretive signs, a pond and nearly three-miles of walking and equestrian trails through scenic woods.

During the Civil War, Confederate forces suffered a bloody defeat at this site when they tried to cross Broad Run in pursuit of the Federal Third Corps. More than 200 soldiers from Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia are believed to have been buried in graves at Bristoe Station. Most of the gravesites are unmarked.

Location
10708 Bristow Road
Bristow, Virginia

The park is accessible from Tenth Alabama Way, off of Iron Brigade Unit Avenue, which intersects Bristow Road.
