Bluemont is a nice local park with tennis courts, a parking lot, bathroom, and lots of space. Good for all the usual things you would want to do in a park, but there's nothing much here that I would drive far to see, although RR history fans might want to come to see a small exhibit.

Bluemont Park is well known by local school kids, baseball teams (Little League or Babe Ruth), and local hikers and picnickers for its easy access to its grounds and as a gateway to various bike paths winding through Arlington. In the Spring and Fall, the seasonal changes in color are particularly beautiful and present a peaceful environment to get away... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip from D.C to this park for a day of disc golf. This course is challenging and offers many gorgeous vistas. From park like to forest terrain. Other amenities we noticed while playing the course. Tennis and basketball courts covered shelter & table with bathrooms and vending machines. Other restroom facilities and a modern playground....

Have walked/jogged thru Bluemont Park more times than I can count. It's one of North Arlington's "best" for many reasons. The Washington & Old Dominion Bike & Running Trail runs through this 70 acre site (a former dairy farm) that also includes a Train Caboose Museum filled with all sorts of 'historic Arlington' photos & memorabilia! During spring, summer and... More

A wonderful little oasis. A nice rest stop for bikers and hikers on the W&OD or Four Mile Run trails in Arlington. A hard covered pavillion for transient use or reservations, complete with flush toilets and soda machines. Most times I've been there, Arlington County Park Rangers are parked there. Good parking for those who would like to drive, park... More

This place is so huge! Creek to play in, fields to use (soccer, volleyball, baseball, lacrosse), basketball court and shaded play area near trails. Lots to do!

A green and pleasant oasis in busy Arlington, with picnic tables, bike/hike paths, and lots of room to spread out and enjoy nature.

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
