New Glencarlyn Park Space Along W&OD Trail Now Open

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held for a new addition to Glencarlyn Park, along Columbia Pike and the W&OD Trail, over the weekend.

The new park space, near the Arlington Mill Community Center, includes a “learning loop” for beginning bicyclists, a bike repair station, a bike water bottle filler, a sand play area and a rain garden.

Construction of the park amenities was estimated at $400,000 when it was approved a year ago.
