Summer Fun in Tysons Corner
August 3, 2012 by Mike Certoma
You don’t need to spend all of your time in your Tysons VA office space. Below are a few fun suggestions for you and your family to enjoy this last summer month before school starts…
Don’t let the bizarre name fool you – this park is ideal for children with special needs. It encompasses 18 acres and offers play equipment and activities specifically for children with braces, walkers and wheelchairs. There is a track that runs through the entire length of the park, as well as colorful pathways, swings and slides, and an area for gymnastics. During the warmer months, you can take carousel rides for $1.50. Bring your picnic lunch and plan to stay for the day, as there are covered areas and picnic tables where you can enjoy a family meal together.

The fair also offers outdoor movie nights: Friday for the teens, Saturday for families.
