About the Project
Rosslyn Highlands Park + will be a dynamic park in the heart of Rosslyn. The park is one component of an even bigger project that includes school, residential and office development.
In the fall of 2015, Arlington County worked with the community to develop a conceptual plan for a new Rosslyn Highlands Park and the other public spaces associated with the Western Rosslyn Area Plan (WRAPS).
These spaces include an open space at the NE corner of 18th and Quinn Streets and related spaces.
The RHP+ Coordinated Open Space Plan will guide the future design and construction of the park spaces. Staff appreciates the many contributions made by community members and users of the park. Additional information will be provided when available.
Oct. 2021 – The playground portion of the park, located at 1801 N. Quinn Street is now open to the public. The remainder of the park is still under construction, but is scheduled for completion by the end of 2021.
