Revamped Griffith Park Playground Now Open

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Sept. 29 to celebrate the opening of the new Griffith Park playground in the Falls Church area.

The park was renovated in a project funded via park bonds. More from a Fairfax County press release:

Funded via voter-approved 2016 park bonds, the $80,000 project replaced outdated equipment with new play elements, interactive panels and swings for children ages 2 to 12. Safety surfacing and playground borders were also replaced and a new drainage system and fence installed. The project was part of a larger effort by the Park Authority to identify and replace playground equipment throughout Fairfax County that has exceeded its useful life.
