Places to Beat the Heat This Summer: Water Play Options Around Tyson’s

Laura Schwartz is a licensed Realtor in VA, D.C. and MD with McEnearney Associates in McLean. Reach the office at 703-790-9090.

With the usual Memorial Day heat and humidity coming our way, nothing is better for cooling off than running through a splash pad or jumping in a pool!

While there are plenty of pools in McLean and Falls Church, make sure you check to see if any have openings for the summer. If you’re looking for a once in a while visit, try one of the options below:

Mosaic District Fountains: Open Daily 11 a.m.-8 p.m. They turn on after Memorial Day, but make sure to call the office and confirm they’re on; (sometimes system maintenance will ruin the best laid plans) 571-282-3518.

Water Mine Family Swimmin’ Hole: Opens this weekend and next weekend only, then full time everyday starting June 14 from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. The park offers a lazy river, water slides, splash pad and a shallow pool with ropes course.

Lee District Family Rec Area: Weekends only starting this weekend from 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m., then every day starting June 14Located in Alexandria, but definitely worth it if your kids like sprinklers and a beach area with water tables.

Town of Vienna Town Green: The Town of Vienna hosts a series called “Summer Stories, Songs & Sprinklers” every Wednesday at 1 p.m. from June 20 to August 8 on the town green.
