Patrick Henry School Playground, Alexandria, Virginia

Playground in Alexandria, VA | Outdoors | For Babies & Toddlers - Elementary Age

Patrick Henry School Playground in Alexandria, Virginia is a very cool spot along with the Patrick Henry Rec Center. There are actually 3 playgrounds at this one location. A toddler one down the steps, a cool big kids one next to the rec center and then the school one (when not in session) which is very space-station-esque! More from our visit below.
