Kids Old and Young Have Fun at Rocky Run, A Great Park in Arlington, Virginia
A massive jungle gym and climbing area capped with a very cool slide for older children immediately catch the eye right off the bat. There is a “tree house” like space at the top and an extensive webbing of climbing nets around the base. One of them is kind of like a tarp with hand and foot holds all the way up. Another climbing structure to build strength and balance is adjacent. There is a very high tunnel slide coming down from the top of the climbing area and tree house. Under the larger play structure is a turf surface, though that is surrounded by a mulch area. This area is really for bigger kids, who will enjoy the challenge. The adjacent toddler area is also well equipped, however and boasts a sandbox with running water during the summer months. You will need to keep a keen eye on little ones in the main part of the playground because adventurous climbers could use a spot from mom or dad.
There are various areas to sit and watch your kiddos from various vantage points.
