Glencarlyn Park in Arlington, VA!

Last week we checked out the Glencarlyn Park in Arlington, VA. This park has two different entrances to the park and like Bluemont Park the W & OD and Four Mile Run Trail run right through the park. The playground can be approached from either entrance with just a short walk down the trail to the equipment.

The park has one piece of large play equipment and one small airplane for the little ones to play on. The equipment will have a ton of shade once the leaves are back on the trees. There is an indoor restroom and porta potties are available in April through October. A creek runs through the park and has several bridges that cross over and are great for the kids to see the fish. The park also has paved trails, nature trails, fishing, canine recreation area, and rental picnic shelters.

This is a great natural park and if your family is into geocaching this another nice site to find hidden caches. If you live in the Glencarlyn portion of Arlington County and like to get out into nature this would be a nice place to hike, jog or bike ride.
