Everyday Fun at Clemyjontri Park –


By DullesMoms, Feb 2020


Clemyjontri Park is a Northern Virginia favorite! This 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.

Fun fact! The popular park is named after the park donor’s four children:

• Carolyn (Cl)
• Emily (emy)
• John (jon)
• Patrina (tri)

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. 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.

Clemyjontri Park features a carousel, as well as the Resource Railroad Train (open seasonally):

Carousel
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.

Trackless Train
Clemy’s trackless train takes you on a ride around the park! Riders can enjoy views of the natural park environment, the colorful playground, and the home to Adele Lebowitz, who donated the 18.6-acre property to the Fairfax County Park Authority in 1997. The trackless train is fee-based and runs seasonally.

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