Arlington residents know that one of the ‘coolest’ places to be on a hot summer day is the Lyon Village Spayground, located at 1800 N Highland St in Lyon Village, just off of Lee Highway. According to Arlington County’s website, “the 1.5 acre park was completely redesigned with the help from Lyon Village Civic Association. A new water play area at the Lyon Village Park playground offers kids a fun way to beat the heat this summer. Five in-ground sprays gushing water into the air take running through the sprinkler to a new level. The free, public “sprayground” also features a 13-foot-high water wheel and dumping bucket that splashes kids with water.” It also features a sandbox, new paths, an ADA accessible water fountain, play areas, and swings.
New hours start July 17:
Mon & Tues: 10-3
Sat & Sun: Noon – 8
Yelpers give positive reviews, noting its “friendly neighborhood vibe” and calling it “masterpiece of summertime playground fun.”
