Playground at Tysons Pimmit Park Expected to Reopen Late March

Updated 3:05 p.m.– Though the project is behind schedule, construction at the Tysons Pimmit Park playground is expected to finish by the end of the month.

Crews at Tysons Pimmit Park (7584 Leesburg Pike) are replacing a picnic shelter, a Fairfax County Park Authority spokesperson said, adding that the area should reopen by late March.

Construction was originally supposed to be finished by Feb. 28, a spokesperson previously told Tysons Reporter.

“There was a need for extra time to accommodate procurement issues and delivery of the equipment,” the Fairfax County Park Authority spokesperson later told Tysons Reporter.

Overall, the project cost $120,000 and is being funded by the 2019 Park Bond, according to county documents.
