Annandale Community Park Playground to be Replaced

Annandale Community Park Playground to be replaced

A new playground is coming to the Annandale Community Park.  The Fairfax County Park Board has approved a plan to demolish the current playground, which has exceeded its life cycle, and build a new playground that meets accessibility requirements and is located closer to the existing rentable picnic shelter.

The new playground will include play equipment with features for children in the 2-5 and 5-12 age groups. The project also includes the installation of an accessible route to the playground area from nearby pedestrian walkways and parking, a safety surface, border, subsurface drainage and related amenities. A multi-use court will be demolished to make way for the new playground. Plans call for re-location of the multi-use court following a stream restoration project at the park.

Construction of the playground is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2020. The replacement project is estimated to cost $260,176, which will be funded by the 2012 and 2016 Park Bonds.

The Annandale Community Park is located just off Hummer Road a few blocks north of Little River Turnpike.  While at the park, plan to visit the Artisans United Gallery of Gifts also located in this park.  When the park was first established, the county had planned to include a Community Center and Amphitheatre.  Unfortunately, those fixtures were never built nor has money ever been allocated for the Annandale Community Center which would benefit everyone in the zip code.
