Arlington - a tale of two cities

Arlington is divided into two areas, North and South by Route 50. Everything north of Route 50 is considered to be North Arlington. Everything south of Route 50 is considered to be South Arlington. With one exception - the Rosslyn neighborhood is south of Route 50 but considered to be in North Arlington.

Arlington Dog Parks

Arlington has gone to the dogs! We love our pets here in Arlington and the county has made sure we have lots of green space for our beloved dogs to romp and play. 


The eight Arlington County Dog Parks are open from sunrise until one half hour after sunset, unless otherwise designated.

All dogs in the County must be on a leash and under the control of their owner or of another responsible person. The only exception to this law is when the dog and its owner are at a county-sanctioned, off-leash dog park. Dogs are never allowed on athletic fields.
