You are cordially invited to our second annual fundraising event supporting the NOVA Parks Outdoor Kids Fund & Potomac Overlook Regional Park on Dec. 13, 2008 from 7 to 9 p.m. Tour the Nature Center, learn more about Potomac Overlook and discover what the park means to the surrounding community! The event will feature drinks & hors d’oeuvres and is open to the general public. Admission is free, but donations welcome. To attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CREATING AN UPDATED PARK FOR THE COMMUNITY:
While much of the park is in a forest, there is an area next to the existing batting cage that is underutilized. This area is not in the natural resources area and because of the slopes is not useful for other purposes. In 2015, NOVA Parks surveyed over 400 park users to see what kind of uses might be attractive to add to the park. Arlington has one of the highest population of the millennial generation in the nation. The survey found that half of those surveyed were of this generation, and they had a high interest in an adventure feature like a ropes course or zip line.
The park in general is open daily from dawn to dusk.

Perfect Fun day with the kids in the middle of Arlington
I have always mainly come for the pool and slides, but mini-golf is fun as well. The park also sports batting cages, picnic areas, and I believe there are some sort of trails around the park. Snack bar usually hits the spot, and you can buy season passes but we don't go often enough for that to be worth our while.

A Welcome Spot for Fun
This is a great place for the entire family on a summer day. A large pool with various slides is enticing. A snack bar with a number of tables caters to the crowd. A set of batting cages (high, medium and low speeds) captures the imagination of future major leaguers. And a miniature golf course gives hope to those interested in the PGA or just having fun. The course is nicely built with holes set on a sloping terrain in the midst of cascading water. Moderate prices for any of these attractions makes the park family friendly.
