One of my favorite places in Northern Virginia is Clemyjontri Park, a playground where children of all abilities can play side-by-side. There's a a carousel, and a picnic ground. Ramps connect the playground equipment. If you've never been to this park, I really recommend checking it out. It's a bit of drive from my house, but every time I go there I'm glad I made the drive.

My kids love going to that park. Aside from the limited parking, it truly is the nicest park in Northern Virginia.

It's moreso a kid's playground vice a "park."

There's not much, if any, grassy area for kids to run around in.

Since it's a park for all abilities, is it fenced in? I've heard of it but never visited it. Maybe when the weather get a "little" warmer.

I don't believe it is fenced in. And it's pretty big (and popular) so it isn't exactly a relaxing, sit-on-a-park-bench type of place. You do end up following the kids around quite a bit. But it is unique and well worth the trip.

No, it's not fenced in. There is some fencing around the far edges, but I think that's just to keep kids from wandering off into the woods. Most of the playground doesn't have fencing.

It's a wonderful place, it really is, but if you have more than one child your best bet is to go with more than one adult. Unless your kids are older and/or follow directions well enough that they don't need close supervision. The playground is so large that it's impossible to keep your eyes on two or three kids at once. Which makes the lack of a fence a little bit of a headache.
