Clemyjontri Playground - The Ultimate NoVa Playground

Months ago, our friends and super parents Erin and Ryan mentioned Clemyjontri Playground, located in McLean, VA. I was a little skeptical of making a special trip out to a playground when we've got a handful right around our house. This last Sunday, we all met up there for some serious play time. Man, was I glad I made the trip.

Here's what the grounds look like from above:

The playground is 2 acre and consists of 4 sections and a carousel. It's got all your usual swings and slides, but also a whole bunch of apparatus that are crying out for kids to use their imagination with. There's a little track to actually encourage running.

Our little one was so elated at the sight of the carousel that upon sight he started yelling "horsey, horsey," pushed his was through folks standing in line and stormed the ride. The operator had to stop the ride for fear that he'd get to the horseys before we got to him.

The playground has a special emphasis on handicap accessibility, so there's something for everyone to do.

The adults definitely got tired before the kids did.

If you're looking for a fun place to take young kids, Clemyjontri should definitely be at the top of the list. I'm convinced that if Disney built the operation, you'd have to pay $30/kid to get in. Luckily, it's a county park and free for all.

Thanks Erin and Ryan for the tip!
