Parks and Playgrounds

Here are some of our favorite parks and playgrounds in Alexandria

Of course the new playground near Potomac Yards is the most recent favorite - we just can't get enough of it.

But here are some others ----

Ft. Ward - great for running around, riding bikes around the loop, looking at the azaleas, picnicking and the small playground.

Beach Park near Maury Elem. School - great for cloudy days - it gets a lot of direct sun.  Great field for playing soccer or catch.

The Pit, on N. Overlook in Beverley Hills.

Ben Brenman Park in Cameron Station is wonderful for strolling and watching the turtles.

The playground at Polk Elementary School is pretty cool - lots to do for every age.

MacArthur Elementary School has some great equipment - different climbing stuff for different stages and ages.

Windmill Park in Old Town is great but can sometimes get a little too crowded.  We like to run through the old tunnel.

Blue Park in Rosemont has a lot to do and you can see some trains go by.

Simpson playground is a nice little park with gardens close by and baseball to watch.

We LOVE taking a hike or stroll through the Dora Kelly Nature park and the Winkler Botanical Preserve, both are located off Beauregard St.  You never know what you will see and hear.  Bull frogs, birds, bees, deer, ducks, and more. There are streams to play in, rocks to collect, and just all kinds of nature to take in.

Jones Point is another favorite place to bike to, watch boats and planes, and just have fun!

Hope you find some great parks and playgrounds and get out and play this Spring!
