Great Falls Nike Park in Great Falls, VA!

Great Falls Nike Park in Great Falls, VA!

Normally I don’t post parks that are part of schools but we hit up this park during the summer and the kids had a great time. Remember to use the playground during the week you’ll have to go after 3 p.m. School officials won’t allow you into the playground until after school hours. But during the weekend you’re free to play from dawn till dusk. The rest of the park is open to the public all days from dawn till dusk. The park includes tennis courts, baseball fields, soccer fields, basketball courts, and  walking/hiking trails. A little historical tidbit behind the name of the park.

The playground area was very large with lots of different play equipment and plenty of swings. We were able to get out on the trail for a short distance before the boys decided to head back to the car. The portion of the trail we were on was paved but I know a portion of the trails are gravel or dirt.

We had a great time at the park playing on the equipment and walking the trails. The park is mostly a sports park but if you happen to be in the Great Falls area close to Sterling check it out.

The past few days have been awesome! The weather gave us a nice break from the wicked winter temperatures. My boys couldn’t wait to get out and go to the local parks. One Fairfax County park that never lets us down is located just inside Great Falls Village,  Great Falls Grange Park.
The park has a large piece of equipment for older kids along with a smaller set for the little ones. The park also has a merry-go-round, regular and toddler swings. This park has plenty of shade and benches to bring a picnic lunch. It also has a baseball field and plenty of room for soccer. Normally during the spring through summer months a porta potty is available and you can also walk next door to the library.  During the weekends, the historic Grange building can be rented out for wedding receptions and banquets.
