Virginia Highlands Park: Where Residents of Instrata Pentagon City Can Find Fun in the Sun in ArlingtonMay 19, 2015
Boasting 18 acres of open space, Virginia Highlands Park is a popular spot for R&R in Arlington. Sports buffs appreciate the number and quality of athletic fields at this park, including lighted tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts, all of which are open for free play, as well as baseball diamonds that are restricted to league play. There's also a popular petanque court, where you'll find locals enthusiastically engaged in a traditional French variety of boules. Kids enjoy the park's grassy fields and playground equipment, and it's pretty common to find a game of ultimate Frisbee in progress nearby. The park also offers a popular and colorful splash pad for kids, which bustles with activity during hot summer days.
Several picnic areas offer a nice "home base" for a day at the park: just pack a lunch, bring a few games, and head on over with your family or group of friends from Instrata Pentagon City.
