Neighborhood Spotlight: Dominion Hills

Perched high along Wilson Boulevard all the way down to Rte 66 and Westover is the charming neighborhood of Dominion Hills.

This beautiful community of modest, mostly brick homes is surrounded by parks, green space and recreation areas. Dominion Hills offers a convenient lifestyle with something to do for everyone.

The grassy field and bustling playground of the neighborhood’s one-acre Dominion Hills Park, three multi-use trails and the spectacular Bon Air Park and Rose Garden offer the ability to be in nature in just a few minutes.

Activities are plentiful in Dominion Hills and the bordering neighborhoods. Stay for a picnic at Dominion Hills Park or walk across Wilson to the skate park and a recreation field at the Powhatan Springs Regional Park in neighboring Boulevard Manor. For more fun, also right across the border in Boulevard Manor you will find non-stop activity at Upton Hill Regional Park where you can choose from the Ocean Dunes Water Park, mini golf, Upton Climb and the batting cages.

For summer fun, join the Dominion Hills Pool at the Dominion Hills Recreation Center.

Located about five miles from Washington, D.C. and close to Interstate 66 and Routes 50 and 7, Dominion Hills is a great location for commuters no matter which direction you are headed. Want to leave the car at home? Dominion Hills is within a few miles of both the East Falls Church and Ballston metros.

Pop over to the Dominion Hills Center for food and shopping. The newest restaurant is the Meridian Pint where neighbors can meet in their outdoor patio for beer, burgers and game nights.

The Civic Association sponsors several family-oriented social activities, most of them held in Dominion Hills Park.

Powhatan Springs Skate Park: The beautifully renovated 17,000 square foot award-winning skate park is one of the most popular features of Powhatan Springs Park. It has a combination of old-school and street elements including two bowls, a snake zone and a street area.

Upton Hill Regional Park: Upton Hill Regional Park offers visitors a wooded oasis in the heart of the most densely populated area of Northern Virginia. A large outdoor waterpark complex is a sparkling attraction in this wooded, urban park.

Bon Air Park Rose Garden: Bon Air Park features a beautiful memorial rose garden that features more than 120 different varieties of roses and is often a chosen location for weddings. The Arlington Rose Foundation serves as partner to advise and to help promote planting. Enjoy the azalea, shade, sun and ornamental tree gardens. Master Gardeners of Arlington maintain sun and shade gardens to use as teaching tools for local gardeners. This expansive 24-acre park also includes playgrounds, picnic areas with charcoal grills and a path.
