Chessie's Big Backyard is in my top 3 of favorite playgrounds in Northern Virginia! It has so much to do beyond the playground and all for free! There are 2 playgrounds one for ages 5-12 year old's is nature themed with lots of obstacles and fun slides. The preschool playground at Chessie’s is ocean themed compete with a light house, friendly sea dragon and pirate ship. Chessie’s Trail: My favorite part of the park is the nature trail which has lots to keep kids and adults happy. There is a scavenger hunt for animal sculptures as well as musical instruments throughout the trail to try. On top of this is a fully accessible treehouse to explore after you’re’ done with your nature hike! In the summer, check out Our Special Harbor Splash ground, a fully accessible FREE splash ground, is also located right next to the playground. There is also a carousel for a small fee.
