The playground is a great size for a neighborhood park.  In addition to the swings, it has a couple of slides,  a  riding horse, a tic tac toe game as well as a little fire engine underneath.

Cavalier Trail Park in Falls Church, VA!

A few months ago we were in the City of Falls Church checking out parks and came across Cavalier Trail Park. The parking lot for the park is located off of Maple Avenue before S. Washington Street. The play area is located down the trail and across the walking bridge. If you want to park near the playground you need to park on Westmoreland Road off of S. Washington Street. The park will be on the right side of the road.

Address: 556 S. Maple Ave, Falls Church, VA

The park includes tennis courts, lit basketball court, paved walking/biking trails, and playground. The playground includes one piece of play equipment and swings. The park has plenty of shade and a picnic table to grab a snack. Sadly there are no restrooms at the park. The kids had a blast standing on the bridge throwing sticks into the creek.

The Cavalier Trail Park is a cute little park in the City of Falls Church. If you live in the area you should check it out.
