Looking for a fun place to take the kids? Clemyjontri Park in McLean is one of the most unique park/playgrounds in the region. Surrounding a carousel, the playground is broken up into different “rooms,” each educating kids on different sensory experiences. #FXVA // Photo courtesy @fairfaxparks. ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #visitfairfax #loveVA #fairfaxcounty #virginia #northernvirginia #tourism #nova #travel #dcarea #virginiaisbeautiful #virginiaisforlovers #kidfriendly #play #playground #parks #park #nature #family #familyfriendly #clemyjontri #fairfaxparks #mclean #mcleanva #carousel #summer #summeractivities #weekend #saturdayfun #clemyjontripark ⁠
