We were recently in Lorton and stopped by Newington Heights Park in Lorton. Operated and managed by the Fairfax County Park Authority, this park is the largest park in Lorton with over 60+ acres.
Lots of trees around, but the playground itself is not shaded. The play equipment is up a small hill and to the left from the parking lot. You can follow the small walking trail to the playground or the playing fields. There is a nice bench right at the playground to watch the kiddos play. Although this park doesn’t have swings, the playground is equipped with slides, climbing equipment, tunnels and monkey bars. There is a walking trail around the park that leads you to tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields.
Although my kids are still a little young for the playing fields, we had fun kicking a ball in the tennis courts, walking the path and of course playing on the playground. If you are in Lorton, check it out!
