Thoughtful planning is the bedrock of Arlington. If you don’t know where you are going, you can’t get there right?
Arlington’s network of parks and public spaces support the community’s need for recreation, protect our natural resources and contribute to the high quality of life that Arlingtonians enjoy. As more people come to live, work and play in Arlington, the need for parks and public spaces continues to grow.
After months of study, community input and analysis, a working group of community members, consultants and staff have a preliminary draft of the County’s Public Spaces Master Plan. Arlington County envisions a network of publicly- and privately-owned public spaces that connect the County’s established neighborhoods and growing corridors to natural areas, protect valuable natural resources, provide opportunities for structured and casual recreation, and ensure access to the Potomac River, Four Mile Run, and their tributaries. Our draft plan seeks to provide the foundation for a well-integrated and robust network of public spaces to support that goal.
