The Washington Post did an article back in October about safety tips when visiting a playground. They also talked about how important getting outside is for kids during the pandemic. Move their body, get creative, maybe even see other human beings — even if from afar.
I have two boys who need to be moving constantly or they start trying to get stimulation by annoying each other, so I’m a big fan of sending them outside to move. Maybe you’re new to the area, maybe you’re just looking for an escape, but here are some great resources on playgrounds around Northern Virginia:
- A map of playgrounds within 15 minutes of Vienna — created by a very generous Vienna mom. This includes the elementary schools, preschools and public playgrounds.
- Instagram Account: @PlaygroundsofNOVA
- DC Area Moms put together a list of their favorite DMV playgrounds.
- Northern Virginia Magazine wrote up a list of 50 parks.
- If you’re looking more for parks than playgrounds, then try this list from TripSavvy.
