Exploring Glencarlyn Park

There is a lot to be said about Glencarlyn Park but I will try to summarize. This beautiful and secluded 95.5-acre park located in Arlington, Virginia, provides a host of family activities. From shaded picnic shelters to fishing, children playground, amphitheater, nature trails, and a dog park.

Glencarlyn Park in Arlington

Although the park is located in a residential neighborhood, it provides a beautiful and peaceful natural setting where you can go to relax and unwide with your family. If you love hiking, running or cycling, the Four Mile Run and W&OD trails near the park offer paved and unpaved trails with varying difficulty. You can enjoy the scenic wooded setting and even catch a glimpse of a variety of wild animals including different species of birds, flying squirrels, box turtles, rabbits, chipmunks, raccoons, foxes, and opossums.

The Long Branch Center, with its demonstration garden and educational displays and exhibits, is also adjacent to the park and you can take your tot there for a fun learning session. For dog owners, Glencarlyn Dog park is a pet’s paradise where your furry friend can enjoy playing in the steam and running through the open space without a leash.
