Pack a Picnic and Head to McLean Central Park

If you have little ones, you might already know about McLean Central Park. Its cute playground is outfitted with a full locomotive sized perfectly for pint-sized passengers and conductors. The front car boasts a slide, while the others are strictly for riding in and playing make-believe. The train claims a small portion of the playground, with the rest occupied by swings, a traditional jungle gym, and a playhouse.

But even if you’re visiting the park solo, you’ll still find plenty to keep you entertained. It features a paved path where you can walk, jog, or ride your bike, as well as a pavilion that plays host to everything from birthday parties to wedding ceremonies. You can also invite a few friends along and play a game of tennis or basketball at McLean Central Park when the sun is shining.
