Mason Neck State Park is a bit further down and doesn't have swimming.
I know but they are very near each other.

There is a small play-in-the-fountain area in Ballston, on Wilson Blvd between N Randolph and N Quincy. (Just in case you are driving around and are looking for a short (and low cost) break.)

One other place to visit is Glen Echo. While your child may be too young for many of the activities, the carousel does have a sled, so you can sit with them and enjoy the ride. It's a great carousel, too, and definitely a great introduction to the city. There's also a small playground near the carousel that they might enjoy for a bit, and there are other areas to explore, both from the old amusement park days and modern things like the puppet theatre, etc.

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.
