Clemyjontri Park

Clemyjontri Park is a Northern Virginia favorite! Named after the park donor’s four children; Carolyn (Cl), Emily (emy), John (jon) and Patrina (tri), the 2+ acre all-inclusive, adaptive playground consists of 4 outdoor “rooms” surrounding a centerpiece carousel: The Rainbow Room, The Schoolhouse & Maze, The Movin’ and Groovin’ Transportation Area, and Fitness & Fun.

In addition to a ton of climb on structures for all ages and abilities, the rubber surfacing is stroller- and wagon-friendly, there are plenty of shaded areas to sit, there are picnic tables (some could be reserved for private use), on-site bathrooms, two vending machines with drinks, and much more.

Parking is tough on nice days, but there is a spill-over lot across the street. Although a totally fun playground, Clemyjontri is large and not 100% fenced. Inevitably you will see a mother frantically searching for a lost little one. I combat this issue by making my kids wear matching, bright shirts. There aren’t many convenience stores on the way, so your best bet for drinks or snacks is to hit McLean off Rt. 123 or bring your own picnic.

Clemyjontri Park features a carousel in service during select days and times, as well as the Resource Railroad Train (both seasonal with the exception of special events):

Carousel at Clemyjontri Park
Just one of the many reasons to visit Clemyjontri Park, their fully-accessible carousel features chariots, a spinning teacup, and 14 prancing steeds. Recessed to ground level so that it is accessible for wheelchairs, the carousel fulfills the vision of Clemyjontri: where children who use wheelchairs, walkers, or braces — or who have sensory or developmental disabilities — can have a parallel playground experience of fun and exploration.

Resource Railroad Train at Clemyjontri Park
Experience Clemyjontri Park in a whole new way this spring and summer! Fun and exploration are not limited to the playground any longer, as children can take a ride and tour this fabulous 2-acre park as a passenger on Engine #62! Train rides are available the last weekend of each month beginning late April and go through the end of September. Interested passengers are encouraged to call ahead of time in cases of inclement weather to ensure that the park is open, and the train is running.

Clemyjontri is located at 6317 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA. See a full playground map here and more about some of its unique features.
