Great spot for working out, having a picnic, or bringing kid(s) for the playground spaces. Check directions before coming as there are two parking lots, there's a far parking lot located mext to the train-style playground. Trails are excellent for running/cycling as well.

This is a park designed mostly for walkers & bicyclists. Long and narrow with a playground at the end.

There is a magnificent rose garden called Bon Air Memorial Rose Garden in Bluemont Park, right off Wilson Blvd. The rose bushes and trees are labeled with the rose type names and years. There's also a pretty little garden tucked off to one side, maintained by Master Gardeners, and an expanse of lawn and big trees, makes for a beautiful... More

Bluemont is one of the Arlington parks through which the WO&D trail runs. Within its wide bounds are baseball and soccer fields, an assortment of picnic areas with tables and even a Frisbee golf course. Its grassy knolls and trees provide an oasis from urban life with a quiet ambience for relaxation and enjoyment. Well maintained by the Arlington Park... More

This is such a great urban park - built around the W&OD rail-trail. There's tennis courts, frisbee golf, baseball fields, soccer fields, and picnic areas. I usually run down to the park from the Bluemont connector trail- and take the trail east to Columbia pike and back. It's shady and peaceful - and never too crowded. On any weekend, you'll... More

I love this park. I think it's just the right size for an urban park. The Four Mile Run trail and the WO&D Trail run through the park, so it's a nice stop off for a picnic or rest if you're biking or walking. The nice thing about this park is that it's always full of people doing all kinds... More

this park in Arlington has the four mile run connector trail running right through it. It is a branch of the OO&D rail-trail. From Bluemont you can ride/walk 20 miles south to Mt.Vernon or 60 miles west to Leesburgh. It also connects to the C&O canal trail to Cumberland, Maryland 130 miles northwest. Bluemont is known for its formal rose... More

Bluemont Park has a little bit of everything... wooded paths, bike lanes, picnic pavilions, playing fields, even a highly regarded disc golf course. The park is clean and very popular, but not well known outside the local neighborhood. Definitely a neighborhood gem of a park.

Great for those who want to excercise, play sports, walk, grill or simply relax. The restroom facilities are clean. Lots of benches to sit down. There is a least one nice playground for the kids that I have seen.

Great park that is well kept. Too bad the county doesn't turn over their road maintenance to the Parks people! Neat and clean as a whistle. The ONLY problem is bicyclists who drive so fast past you it is scary. They should be banned. One even killed a citizen last year from the same thing. Police need to be out... More
