MLK Jr Park Alexandria with a new in the Fort Hunt area! I admit at first I was thinking it was kind of underwhelming for what they said the project cost (want to guess?!) but my kids truly loved it! 3 different sound surprises (swipe to hear the giggles) and lots of different structures.

Patrick Henry School Playground, Alexandria, Virginia

Patrick Henry School Playground, Alexandria, Virginia

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.

Long Bridge Park Playgrounds

Long Bridge Park Playgrounds

Long Bridge Park Playgrounds are so cool because its actually 3 in a row! Plus you can watch airplanes take off at DCA and trains right next to the walkway. We all loved it. Coolest playground is the Mist/Fog/Spray playground, perfect for cooling off. Also my kids loved the big red button to turn it on. Second is what I am calling the “Teletubby hill” playground which was SHADED and had so many cool features. My kids played here the longest and it was great for hide and seek! Third is a Bridge playground my daughter asked, “is that art or a playground?” Very cool but also very hot so we opted for the other two.
