Four Mile Run Park is undoubtedly the highlight of the neighborhood. Stretching nearly 50 acres along the Four Mile Run River, the park has it all: Athletic fields, basketball courts, biking/jogging/walking trails, bird and river watching, fishing, a playground, picnic benches and grassy sitting areas. One of the bike trails, in fact, connects the city to its neighbors; the path heads into Arlington to the west and Washington, D.C. to the north. The fields are used by local schools as well as community youth and adult sports leagues.
The park is well-used by neighborhood residents as it's very kid and dog-friendly
and remains free to everyone. The park represents a truly connected community, one that takes care of the park and neighborhood.
Every year, neighborhood residents volunteer to participate in the Ocean Conservancy’s Annual International Coastal Cleanup. Coordinated by Clean Virginia Waterways, this project focuses on Four Mole Run Park and community members show up in bunches every year to pitch in.
