    Will RA’s “Date Night” take my severely ID child? She’ll need close supervision and some small accommodations so that she can access the program. She would certainly enjoy being a part of the fun and being around other children even if she can’t participate in all of the activities.

    I don’t recall RNGC having picnic tables and outdoor grilling areas. I could be wrong, but that may be a picture of another park.

      Oops Yes, think that is mislabeled. It is actually Lake Fairfax.
