My husband, 4 year old son and I just relocated to the Fair Lakes area of Fairfax. I am looking for some suggestions on local parks with playground equipment, a good pool we can join that has swim lessons available for our son, some preschool suggestions, plus a exercise club with a good child care area. Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the area. In the summer you probably can visit an elementary school in the rea and use their playgrounds. There's a small children's playground at the Greenbriar Commons, the park on Pt. Pleasant across from Greenbriar East ES. The swingset is located towards the back. Greenbriar Pool is right beside it and there may be rentals available, but I believe they may also offer swim lessons to non-members. You can always stop in and ask, or email them. The website is Greenbriar Pool Club Another private community pool that may have memberships available is the Brookfield Pool, on Pennsboro Dr. in the Brookfield neighborhood. Their website is Brookfield Swim Club Also, down Rt. 29 is Bull Run Regional Park which has a big pool and play area. Up in Reston is Lake Fairfax with a pool and water park type of setup. If you're looking for excersize just for you, in the Greenbriar Shopping center is Lady of America. It's women only but it has child care, not sure what the hours are, but stop in and check it out. I use to belong and it's small but a nice facility.

Again, welcome to the area!
