Woodbridge, Va. — The grand court at Potomac Mills mall has come a long way since the days of large plastic apples sitting in an oversized cereal bowl filled with water. While the decorative bowl of apples has been missing from the mall for years, Potomac Mills on Thursday unveiled a new children’s play place in the grand court modeled after landmarks in Virginia.

It includes a 17th century ship, cardinals depicting the state bird, Chesapeake blue crabs, George Washington and his fabled cherry tree.

The new play park sits in neighborhood one, known as the mall’s fashion district.

Also on hand to celebrate the opening of the new play place was Santa who visited with children and invited them to write a letter to Santa. Children also sang along with entertainer, “Oh, Susanna.”
