ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Generic park image (via Arlington County Parks Dept.)Stores might be stocking up on pumpkin ale and other fall goodies, but the weather this weekend does not indicate the end of summer any time soon.

National Weather Service predicts a high of 88 degrees for Saturday and 90 degrees for Sunday.

One way to enjoy one of the last weekends of summer break is at one of Arlington’s numerous parks. Some Arlington parks have shade and water features to help beat the heat, as well as playgrounds, tennis courts and picnic spaces. However, as we reported this week, not all visitors have had glowing reviews of local parks.

If spending time in the sun, isn’t for you or your family, it might be a good opportunity to pick up last minute back-to-school items. It may be a good weekend to drive, walk or bike, as all Metrorail lines in Arlington will be experiencing delays.

The Blue, Orange, Yellow and Silver lines will run trains every 18 minutes this weekend due to single tracking and repairs.

Feel free to head to the comments section to lament over the impending end of summer, the pre-season state of Washington’s professional football team or the one-star reviews of local parks. Or, as always, you can discuss any topic of local interest.
