3 Fun Family Friendly Parks near Wheaton-Glenmont

Park near Enclave Silver Spring Apartments in Wheaton-Glenmont

Spring has sprung in the Greater Washington area, and after a long, cold winter, it’s probably time to get the family outdoors to let out that pent-up energy. Fortunately, you’ll find plenty of outside fun near The Enclave Apartments. Here are three top family-friendly activities you’ll find near Wheaton-Glenmont this spring.

1. Wheaton Regional Park

Wheaton Regional Park makes for a great day trip. This park hosts a variety of things for families to see and do. You’ll find the Brookside nature center that hosts educational programs, play areas, the exquisite Brookside Gardens (great for spotting wildlife!), and plenty of areas to enjoy a picnic. Families can also easily spend the entire day hiking, biking, fishing, and so much more.

2. Great Falls Park (McLean, VA)

Great Falls Park is an 800-acre park run by the National Park Service (NPS). The park itself is based on the Virginia side of the Potomac River, but you can still view the whitewater rapids from the Maryland side which is part of the C&O Canal. From Silver Springs it takes roughly about the same time to get to either side of Great Falls (about 20 minutes).

Show the kids the power of nature as you gaze upon this rough part of the otherwise serene Potomac River. They can view the water’s force as it runs over the steep, jagged rocks found as the water goes through Mather Gorge. You’ll find plenty of walking trails and have the opportunity for plenty of scenic views.

3. Sandy Springs Adventure Park

Sandy Springs Adventure Park is designed for family fun, ages five and up. If your crew is up for a little adventurous and high thrill fun, this is the perfect destination. The park is located fairly near Wheaton-Glenmont. During this outing, your family can learn how to climb and zip line from different heights up to 65 feet high (safely harnessed). Altogether, this adventure park offers 16 separate trails offering various levels of difficulty. Open Friday-Sunday. Tickets can be reserved online.
