9:30 am. Clemyjontri Park Carousel Opens. Chariots, a spinning tea cup and 14 prancing steeds await only the imagination of children. The carousel is recessed to ground level so that it is accessible for wheelchairs, allowing children to transfer to the tea cup. The chariot is designed to allow for transfer to a seated position or to remain seated in the wheelchair.
Clemy Park is truly one of the jewels of McLean.
Every year the Kent Gardens Elementary School PTA hosts an International Night. The purpose of International Night is to bring together Kent Gardens’ families and learn about and share with each other the many cultures represented in our school. There is international entertainment, a parade of nations with traditional costumes, arts & crafts, country displays and food. The event is free of charge and open to everyone.
Truly a special night in McLean.
