A new, temporary park at the corner of Clarendon Blvd and N. Barton Street in Courthouse is about a month away from opening.
The park, built on land leased gratis to Arlington County by the Korean embassy, is expected to open — weather-permitting — by the end of May, according to Dept. of Parks and Recreation spokeswoman Susan Kalish.
The tiny park will include accessible paths, landscaping, and a rectangular multi-use area that can be used for bocce, cornhole and other activities.
The park was designed after the county sought input from community members. Other ideas floated for the park that didn’t make the cut included miniature golf, game tables and demonstration gardens.
“The community wanted us to create something that’s flexible so they could enjoy the area in the manner that suits them,” Kalish said.
