Extraordinary Neighborhood: Lyon Park (Arlington VA)

In this highly-desirable, cosmopolitan neighborhood, you will find some Nova's finest. In the heart of the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor, a variety of popular restaurants, shops, parks, residential neighborhoods, apartment buildings, condos, and major employers are all within a just a few blocks of the Clarendon Metro station. Here it's easy to live, work, shop, play and stay out past five...all without having to drive. The neighborhood is served by bus, Metrorail, ART-Arlington Transit, bike lanes and routes, pedestrian amenities, and even car-sharing. Along with Clarendon, Courthouse, Ballston and Rosslyn, are all located on the Wilson -Clarendon Boulevard corridor, which was named one of 10 "Great Streets" in the U.S. by the American Planning Association.

Henry Clay Park, located directly across the street from the house, has a pre-school playground and a school-aged playground, along with a full basketball court. In the heart of Lyon Park is a large Community Meeting Center, where the neighborhood association regularly hosts community events and activities, and maintains a large playground with related seasonal activities always on the calendar.

On the other side of Wilson Blvd sits Lyon "Village" Park, which boasts a 1.5-acre fenced in park packed full of recreational amenities. Picnic tables and a sheltered picnic area are open to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis, and water fountains are available on-site. There are two Tennis Courts and a Basketball Court at the park, all of which are lit until 11 p.m. In addition to a playground, the park's Sprayground is also open between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

James Hunter Park, a newly-constructed dog and people park, sits just a stone's throw from Clarendon Metro and features ample grass and park benches for picnics and a large fountain for your furry friend to cool off.
