Things You Should Know About Franklin Park In McLean

Franklin Park is located in McLean in Fairfax County, Virginia off Old Dominion Drive close to the Arlington-Fairfax County line. The Franklin Park area is bordered by Kirby Road to the north, Old Dominion Drive and its side streets to the east, the Arlington County-Fairfax County line to the south, and Powhatan Street to the west.

Franklin Park is one of McLean’s oldest and most coveted neighborhoods. Despite its immediate proximity to Arlington and D.C., the picturesque community feels a world apart, buffered by its hilly terrain and old-growth forest.

Among the nearest shopping around Franklin Park is the Chesterbrook Shopping Center on Old Dominion Drive, which includes a Safeway, Rite Aid, Starbucks, and Subway. The shopping center is not easy to get to on foot from most of the community.

Franklin Park is served by Chesterbrook Elementary School, Longfellow Middle School, and McLean High School. The East Falls Church Metro station is 1 3/miles from Franklin Park.
