Kids Activities in Tysons Corner, VA
Tysons Corner, Virginia is located about seven miles west of Washington, D.C. Its main attractions are its two big shopping malls. Tysons Corner Center is the sixth-largest mall in the country, and Tysons Galleria, just across the street, is a more upscale mall with high-end stores including Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. The surrounding area is dotted with office buildings and restaurants, but there are some patches of green amid the concrete, affording some fun activities for kids in Tysons Corner.

Children of all ages love the level three mall play area near the movie theaters and food court at Tysons Corner Center. There are play huts and slides to climb on and over in a cushioned floor area. Seating lines the edges of the area, making it comfortable for parents and family members. A train drives around the edge of the food court and play area offering rides. A kids club meets each Wednesday at 11 a.m. featuring entertainment and prizes. If you like a busy atmosphere, check out the play area any Saturday. It's sure to be packed.

Spring Hill Recreation Center

One of the busiest places for fun in the Tyson's Corner area is the Spring Hill Rec Center. This Fairfax County facility has a heated indoor pool, racquetball courts, a "tot lot" play area, a fitness room with workout equipment, and baseball, soccer and football fields. Lap time is always available in the pools, although swimming classes of all kinds are offered year round. Free play time is available in the shallow end of the pool most days after noon. There are no membership dues, but you will have to pay a general admission fee, based on age, each time you visit.

Clemyjontri Park

Approximately five miles east of Tyson's Corner Center, Clemyjontri Park, which opened in 2006, offers a unique and delightful playground for children. Swings, slides, play equipment and pathways are designed to accommodate children of all abilities. The park was built for kids in wheelchairs, walkers or braces, as well as for those who don't have disabilities. It's a colorful place and the ground surfaces are non-slip, for safety. A carousel, open in summer months, features 14 horses and is wheelchair-accessible. The only downside is that parking is limited. Look for the overflow parking across the street from the park.
