Last week we were visiting a friend in Herndon and she recommended we go to Southview Community Park. It is affiliated to the Southview Community Church, but their vision for this park is to share this park with the whole community in the Northern Virginia area.
This park is gated in (that locks), has a large playground with swings (both infant and regular), picnic tables with roof and the playground flooring is made up of recycled rubber. The playground was huge, colorful playground with a climbing wall, tunnel, slides and more! As a mom with two very busy boys, I really enjoyed there was a fence around this playground so I could let the boys explore and know that they were safe.
Southview had their park grand opening in September 2013. This park was created because they wanted to provide an even better experience for the community with a safe, fun environment where parents, grandparents and caregivers can come and bring their kids.
If you are in the Herndon area, I highly recommend planning a trip to let your little ones explore and play.
