The weather has been fabulous lately and we couldn’t resist hitting up a new park while my mom was visiting from California. McLean Central Park was our first stop. The Fairfax County Public Library, Dolley Madison Branch is located on the property and the best way to reach the playground is to park near the library.
This 25-acre park has a basketball court, lit tennis courts, disc golf course, walking/hiking trails, and playground. There is also a Gazebo available for rent near the tot lot. The tot lot is filled with very brightly colored play equipment and both types of swings. The play equipment is more for the younger crowd with the small slides and crawl on toys. The play area is completely in the shade and restrooms are available down the trail in the library.
We had a great time at the park especially my oldest because of the train play equipment. If you have little ones this is the park to go in the McLean Area!
