Where are we going today?

It's tough growing up, especially if you feel a little different to the other kids, or feel a bit left out.  Clemyjontri Park doesn't care if you are in a wheelchair, or slightly different from other kids. In fact, they have designed this incredible playground with you in mind!

Children of all abilities can play side-by-side.  They have ramps connecting structures to allow those wheelchairs access just like everyone else.  The swings have high backs and arm rests, as well as other safety features, and there is rubber surfacing which allows wheelchairs to roll easily.

They even have lowered monkey bars to provide easy access!

Every piece of equipment is rich in sensory experiences so all kids can have fun and play with their friends, and really develop themselves. 

They can challenge themselves and their balance on the balance beams, and even race their friends on the mini-track.  Who will cross the finish line first!?  There are playhouses and cubbies to explore, and develop social interaction, as well as allowing children needing those quiet spaces to have their moment.

What would a fun play are be without spinning tea cups and prancing horses!  The carousel is ground level to allow for wheelchairs, so kids can transfer for the tea cups easily and still enjoy the ride with their friends! 

Imagination can be stimulated on the Movin and Groovin Transportation Area, or the Rainbow Room encourages sign language and Braille reading.  And of course, teaches the colors of the rainbow!

A beautiful park where all kids can feel equal.

When can we go?

Park Open Daily 7am to Dusk.

I'm Hungry!

The park is a great place to enjoy picnics, and there is direct access to the picnic pavilion from the playground. These are available on a first come first served basis. There are also additional picnic tables available in the park. .

Any Top Tips?

Most visitors come to the park between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m so try coming on the off peak hours. .

Need a little extra help?

The whole park is amazingly accessible for all kids an abilities. A special feature popular with kids is The Liberty Swing, which allows children in wheelchairs the opportunity to experience the joy of having a swing in the park. It is the only swing of its type that can allow the kids to really feel the sensation of swinging, and not just rocking back and forth!.

More information

The park really is quite large and filled with play equipment, so if you have more than one small child, it's best to have a second adult to ensure you can keep an eye on them the whole time. .

    This park is way out of my way from Manassas, Virginia, but I have family in the area and as such I went to visit with my little niece the one time I have been here.

    The only problem I saw with it was parking.

    Also, another concern was that many parents do a poor job of keeping their kids sanitary and teaching their kids about sanitation practices - but most kids don't pay attention to that sort of thing anyway.

    So, bring a bottle of bleach and douse your child in it once you get them back to the car. Oh, and I am not germ-freak!

    Great for toddlers; probably the best public playground in the entire region. Perfect for visitors to the area who need to have their young'uns burn off some energy. It is close to Dolley Madison Parkway, GW Parkway and the Capital Beltway. I can imagine how shooting water fountains would be a really awesome addition for kids in the hot summer. Parents can relax here while the kiddies play.

    Not so great for older kids. My son enjoyed it for about 15 mins, then he got bored. He is 10 yrs old. We stopped by there on the way to Scotts Run Nature...Read More

    Great park for my 4-year old, but not really designed for my 8-year old. Even so, my eldest had loads of fun. Unfortunately the merry-go-round was not operating during our visit and it looked like a super one to!

Not so great for older kids. My son enjoyed it for about 15 mins, then he got bored. He is 10 yrs old. We stopped by there on the way to Scotts Run Nature Preserve. It was nice to have rest rooms here. Merry Go Round was closed for the season after last week. Parking is really lacking (even in the park across the street), but I read that there is a phased plan to increase the parking.
