Open Water Swim

Lake Audubon Reston

Just one of Reston Virginia's four man-made lakes, Lakes Anne, Thoreau, Audubon and Newport, covering 125 acres and provide recreation and stormwater management for the community. Fishing, boating, wildlife watching and lakeside picnicking are available. Many sections of pathway are near the lakes, and simply walking near or around the lakes is a popular pursuit.
