Arlington: Best Parks
Voted number 4 on Washington Post's "Top Cities for Parks", it's clear why Arlington made the list. Arlington’s top trails (Mount Vernon, Four Mile Run and W&OD) are crowded at peak times, the city has plenty of open space at lesser known spots such as Fort C.F. Smith, a 19-acre park with short trails, Civil War earthworks ruins, a lush tree canopy and an open meadow. Long Bridge Park, pretty close to the Pentagon and the Potomac, overlooks the river and Roaches Run Waterfowl Sanctuary. Glencarlyn Park is nearly 100 acres, with wooded trails and a stream.
