June marks the beginning of summer, the most magical season for young children. The warm weather and less time-crunched schedules invite families and children to get outside and have fun together.

Alexandria is filled with opportunities to make some lifelong memories by playing together. Our beautiful city is home to more than 900 acres of parks and dedicated public space, plus many neighborhood and recreation centers, pools, and waterfront activities.

Visit alexandriava.gov/recreation for a list of over 100 parks, sports fields, rec centers, nature centers, and trails—all just waiting to be explored. Many of them offer year-round programs and exhibits for children and adults of all ages.
