Fairchester Woods Park in the City of Fairfax is very cute neighborhood park with lots of shade. The park sits in between homes and can be reached by either Warwick Avenue or Scott Drive. The park includes a half basketball court and playground area.
The playground area includes a large piece of play equipment with a Clifford theme and can really accommodate all age ranges. Plenty of swings both toddler and regular are located to one side of the park. Small ride on toys are also available for the kiddos to play on. There is not much shade over the play equipment but plenty of shade over the swings and ride on toys. Of course bring your bug spray as the gnats when we were there were flying around. I totally expect that at a park that is surrounded by grass and large older trees.
No restrooms at this park but if you live in the Fairchester Woods neighborhood this is a great park to walk to and have the kids burn off some energy. If you live in the City of Fairfax and are looking for small wooded park check out Fairchester Woods Park!
