The City of Falls Church has some really nice parks and Cherry Hill Park is no exception. When we visited the park it was just a week after the horrible Derecho came through and wreaked havoc on the Northern Virginia area. The park has big beautiful older trees and a few of them were lost in the storm. The Falls Church City Community Center is also located in the same parking lot as the park.
Address: 312 Park Avenue, Falls Church, VA
The Cherry Hill Park gets it’s name from the old farm land it sits on. In the 70’s as a bicentennial project the City of Falls Church decided to restore the Cherry Hill Farm with the help of the Friends of Cherry Hill Foundation. The Cherry Hill Farmhouse and Barn were restored and to this day the farmhouse is used for educational purposes and furnishings are purchased and maintained.
The park also includes a playground, large grassy area, lighted tennis and basketball courts, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, picnic pavilion and plenty of picnic tables and benches. The playground includes large and small pieces of equipment, both types of swings and small playhouse. The park has plenty of shade and restrooms are located in the Farmhouse and Community Center. To be close to the playground, street parking along Park Ave is available but for more parking just pull in by the Community Center and walk across the grassy area.
We love this park and plan to go back in the future. If you live in the City of Falls Church I suggest you check out this great park!
