Between amazing food, drinks and entertainment, there are plenty of great things to do in Arlington — but not all of it is family friendly. Luckily, when it comes to finding fun for the whole family, we are here to help! So take a look below to learn about 5 more of our favorite recreational parks!
Lyon Village Park
Sitting just south of Lee Highway, Lyon Village Park is a cute, 2-acre space that offers tons of fun activities. Families can enjoy their snacks at the picnic pavilion — and with so much fun to be had, you and yours are sure to work up an appetite!
This gorgeous park is great for toddlers and big kids alike, with enjoyable activities for all ages. In addition to spaces to place tennis and basketball, the park’s sprayground is a perfect way to escape the summer heat.
Rocky Run Park
Rocky Run Park is a great option for school-aged children and toddlers alike, with plenty of fun to be had across its 2 acres. Although there are distinct spaces for each age group, they are close enough together that parents or guardians can keep an eye on all their kids at once.
Little athletes are sure to fall in love with Rocky Run Park — in addition to a full-sized basketball court, the recreational area also features a turf field that is perfect for playing soccer or football. Rocky Run Park also has some convenient luxuries, such as public bathrooms and off-street parking options, that are much appreciated.
At the time of publication, Rocky Run Park is closed for ongoing repairs — so make sure you check the Arlington Parks and Recreation website regularly to see when you can come enjoy this great space!
Located off of I-66 near the Virginia Square neighborhood is Hayes Park, another one of the best parks in Arlington. Hayes Park is the perfect place to enjoy a steamy summer day, with a great sprayground, fun play structures and courts for playing tennis or basketball.
Hayes Park is also fenced in for ultimate peace of mind, and the spot has an off-street parking lot and public bathrooms. This makes Hayes a great place to spend an afternoon — and you can pack a lunch or snack to enjoy at one of the picnic tables!
If you are looking for tons of options for fun, then look no further than Virginia Highlands Park. This massive recreational space, which is near the Pentagon City and Crystal City Metro stops, is a 1-stop spot for all kinds of outdoor fun. There are courts and fields for all kinds of sports including tennis, basketball, baseball and volleyball, as well as a sprayground and tons of relaxing shade.
The park features separate spaces for toddlers and bigger kids, each with their own unique play structures and activity spaces. The toddler playground is fully fenced in and has conveniently located public bathrooms. However, it is important to note that these two playground areas are not very close together, which can be a bit inconvenient.
Long Bridge Park
With beautiful views of Washington, D.C. and the Potomac River, Long Bridge Park is one of the coolest places to get out some energy. The 30-acre recreational park, which is near the National Landing area of Arlington, has 3 full-size lighted fields and interactive play areas for kids of all ages.
By far the most unique aspect of Long Bridge Park is its proximity to Reagan airport. This makes the park a perfect place to watch planes take off, as they fly directly overhead as they take off from the hub. So if you are looking for art, exercise, and fresh air in Crystal City, then check out Long Bridge Park!
