In August we did quite a few Fairfax and Prince William County Parks. South Run District Park was one of our stops. It was one of the nicer days but the sun was still pretty hot. I was very excited to see awnings over the play equipment to the protect the kids from the sun. One section of the playground looked like it had lost it’s awning in the storm but the kids were still able to escape the heat.
South Run District Park is 192-acres filled with equestrian, biking and hiking trails, lit soccer, football, and baseball fields, lit tennis and basketball courts, RECenter, indoor swimming pools, racquetball courts, off-leash dog park and playground. ***The swimming pools and locker rooms were getting an over haul and were closed when we there at the end of August***
We had a great time at the playground under the shade of the awning. The boys loved all the monkey bars that were right at there level so no need for mommy to have to hold them up and catch them as they fall. Restrooms are located conveniently right next door to the play area in the RECenter so you can take a break in the A/C to use the clean indoor restrooms. The restrooms included a stool for the little guys to help wash their hands.
This was a great park and if you live in the Springfield/ Burke area off of Fairfax County Parkway (286) you should check it out!
