Last week we headed out to Fairfax County to check out Kings Park in Springfield, VA. The park was located in the Kings Park neighborhood and tucked back in the woods. There are lit tennis courts, unlit basketball courts, baseball and soccer fields, picnic area, walking/hiking trails and playground.
The playground area was in a great spot above the tennis courts. The equipment was all newer and had some neat elements to it. The only draw back and keep in mind it was August in the summer but the bugs were pretty bad. So I would recommend some bug spray since the play area sits in the middle of the woods. There was plenty of shade but no restrooms. The kids and I also headed out on the trails and had a lot of fun.
The kids really enjoyed this park especially the large slides and rock climb. If you live in the Springfield area head out and check out Kings Park.
