The variety of parks available make the Douglas Park community perfect for dog owners, families with children and the elderly. Right in the neighborhood, Barcroft
Park features athletic fields, bleacher seats, benches, walking and jogging paths and a gigantic playground for kids. Even pets
can have some fun as long as they remain leashed. Bathrooms, free parking and water fountains make this a convenient area to relax or enjoy a game.
The paved trails at Douglas Run allow anyone to enjoy the natural settings, even locals pushing strollers or sitting in wheelchairs. The city of Arlington offers many different parks that appeal to a wide variety of interests. Exercise-centric features, fenced dog runs, swimming pools, bicycle paths and hiking trials can all be enjoyed within the boundaries of the community, and parking remains free at each lot of preserved land.
