Clemyjontri Park in Mclean, VA!

Clemyjontri Park is an awesome park located in Mclean, VA off of Georgetown Pike (Rt 193) in Fairfax County. The park is 18 acres of bright colorful play equipment made for children with all different levels of development and special needs. The park was donated by the Lebowitz Family and the name is a combination of their four children, Carolyn (CL), Emily (EMY), John (JON), Petrina (TRI). Adele Lebowitz envisioned a park where all children could play side by side no matter their physical or mental differences. Further development of the park will include 10 acres of open space that will offer more amenities.

Large ramps connect pieces of equipment and are wide enough for wheelchair access. The rubber flooring is smooth and easy on the kids knees when they fall down. Other features of the park include a working carousel and picnic pavilion. Carousel tickets cost $1.75 for each child and adults are free. The pavilion is available for a shaded spot to enjoy a snack or lunch. You can also rent the pavilion for events and parties. Clean restrooms and water fountains are located on the property.

The pictures do not do the park justice. There is a lot of different types of equipment spread out over the park with plenty of benches and shaded areas to take a break. Clemyjontri Park is normally super busy but we were lucky that a passing rain shower kept people away. An extra parking lot is available at Langley Fork Park and you can follow a path down the road to a marked crosswalk where you cross over Georgetown Pike.  

Clemyjontri Park is a great park and the kids always have a blast!
