Clemyjontri Park is a very unique public park. Like any other park, kids at Clemyjontri can enjoy playground fun. But Clemyjontri is unique in Fairfax County because this is a place where children with and without disabilities can play side-by-side.
The distinctions are subtle: Clemyjontri Park is like any other playground, with swings, slides and fun play-equipment. But this park is design with simple changes such as swings with high backs for children who need extra support or nice wide colorful pathways. Most of the grounds are non-slip and with a porous design that provides a greater level of access for children.
The playground has two acres of STUFF! Stuff to climb on, stuff to touch, stuff to read, do or create. Kids love stuff like the Rainbow Room; the Schoolhouse; the Maze, Picnic Area, Movin’ and Groovin’ Transportation Area; and the Fitness and Fun Zone. The pride of Clemyjontri is at the center of the park: the carousel!
The kids that visit love the racetrack. The playhouses have crawling nooks and places to explore. Many children enjoy the balance beams. There are community areas, and places where kids can play alone. There are bright sunny places to play and shaded benches and play areas as well.
An asphalt trail connects the site to trails that encircle the park.
This playground is for all children. Help us keep it clean and safe.
No smoking, food or beverages are allowed on the playground.
Use playground and equipment for its intended purpose only.
Bicycles, skateboards, etc. are not permitted in the play areas.
Children and visitors should use age-appropriate playground equipment only.
No pets of any kind are permitted on the playground.

Arlington Ridge Road traces the crest of Arlington Ridge, a steep rise of land that parallels the Potomac in Virginia. This the same geographic feature that creates the bluffs in Mclean and the rise of land through Arlington National Cemetery. Throughout Northern Virginia, this rise of land is home to some of the most desirable land in the Metro area and the neighborhood around Arlington Ridge Road is no exception.
Residences here have easy access to DC, Arlington and Alexandria because of both the road network and the neighborhood itself. In addition to easy access to thoroughfares like Rt. 1, I-395 and Army Navy Drive, this old neighborhood has plenty of back streets and cross-streets to help avoid trouble when things back up. In addition because this is an older neighborhood, it’s generally very low density.
The homes in this neighborhood often have sweeping lawns with mature and towering hardwoods. Many of these homes were built as summer get-aways for old-time Washington DC. Some were not much more than simple cottages. Some are spacious lodges. Many of these homes have had extensive renovations and additions. A good many have been replaced entirely by stately manor homes that speak to the affluence and prestige of this community.
The real estate here is among the priciest in Northern Virginia, but if you’re seeking convenience, elegance and a quiet neighborhood, it’s really tough to beat Arlington Ridge.
Located on the ground floor of the Crestwood Heights condominiums between Freddie Mac and the Galleria, Harris Teeter is open 24 hours and includes a pharmacy, wine consultant and free underground parking. Harris Teeter was the first grocery store in the Tysons Corner area. Previously Tysons area residents had to travel into downtown McLean for groceries or a pharmacy. Harris Teeter now draws customers from single family homes, condos and apartments along International Drive, Spring Hill Rd and Lewinsville Rd.
Harris Teeter’s salad bar, sushi bar and homemade pizzas attract the lunchtime business crowd, especially those from neighboring Freddie Mac. A brightly lit eating area, with a fully staffed Starbucks, includes an outdoor patio with seating for more than 20. It is also open through the evening for early dinners.
Grocery shoppers will find a wide variety of fresh produce, including many organic items. There are plenty of free samples in the bakery, deli and cheese areas, too. The wine and beer aisle is smaller than you would expect but makes up for it in variety.
They No. Carolina-based chain seems to have created a Wegman’s, but on a smaller scale. All the amenities of the super-size store but in a smaller footprint. They even thought to include cup holders in the grocery carts so you can sip your latte as your shop. (and yes, the cups fit perfectly) Shoppers who park on the first level leave the store via the escalator while their cart rides in the nearby cart-o-later. And no worries if another “snowmaggeden” hits while you are shopping since all parking is underground, well lit and very clean.
Their staff is very helpful. Their prices competitive. And their loyalty card is a must-have. Next time you are in Tysons Corner, take your eyes off the high rises and construction cranes and take a look inside Harris Teeter for a glimpse of the future.
Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the city and all it has to offer are several high end neighborhoods that would make many heads spin once or twice. If you drive around McLean for a while it is obvious that you are in the midst of luxury and luxury at its best. I can imagine that there are people who move here for a number of reasons but one thing Northern Virginia is known for is housing those that have quite a bit of money to spend. Of course with the government being responsible for a majority of the jobs here and having several professional sports teams in the area, there are sure to be some big spenders.
If you are in the market for a luxury home, make sure McLean is on your list of places to check out. Going down route 7 there is a parade of mansions that ling the long road and it is quite the site to see. I saw one property that looked like it had several houses attached to it, until I realized it was all one house. For those of you who may not be in the market, its still a beautiful site to see. It is simply amazing to view some fo the architecture and design work that has been put into building these homes.
