The Green Acres Center in the City of Fairfax has uses for all ages. It offers senior citizens daily activities and entertainment. Rooms are also available to rent for meetings and other events with a cafeteria, dance studio, multipurpose room, toddler play room and gymnasium. Main Street Child Development Center is also part of the Green Acres Center. This non-profit organization offers affordable daycare to working families who have limited income in the Fairfax area.
The surrounding areas of the Green Acres Center includes a very large fenced-in playground, basketball courts, little league field, and soccer field. Portable restrooms were located by the little league field but you can also go inside the center and use the indoor restrooms. The fenced-in tot lot had several large pieces of play equipment, tons of swings but only one toddler swing, and what use to be a sand box which had mostly mulch in it but it was covered from the sun. There is no shade around the playground area so on hot days it’s pretty unbearable.
The boys had a great time at the park. The weather wasn’t too hot and they got to play on all the equipment before the daycare kids came out. The public is absolutely allowed in the park from dawn to dusk so if you live in the City of Fairfax near George Mason University check out the playground area behind the Green Acres Center in the City of Fairfax.
