Cherry Hill Park has been described as the “crown jewel” of the City’s park system and as such it helps define the community. The park is invaluable to the City, as it is indeed the center of, and focal point for, most of the City’s special events and activities. It is the most heavily used park in the City of Falls Church because of its central location and many amenities.

In the fall of 2017, the City will replace Cherry Hill Park’s outdated playground equipment to make it more accessible. This video shows the most current design as of March 2017.
The Recreation and Parks Department collected community input via meetings, suggestion boxes, and even informal focus groups with elementary school students!
The community expressed a need for more swings and play equipment that would interest older children. They also preferred equipment that more children can play on versus themed equipment that would not be able to accommodate as many children at the same time.
To accommodate additional swings, more equipment, and considering damage to trees in the park, the play equipment has shifted towards the volleyball court and an accessible pathway will lead from the back of the parking lot, across the park just in front of the volleyball court and to the playground.
