Find Fresh Air and Sunshine Near Your Apartment in Arlington at Bon Air Park

One of the most remarkable things about Bon Air Park in Arlington is its ability to serve as a backdrop for both special of occasions and ordinary outings. Located not far from your apartment in Arlington, the 24-acre public park on Wilson Boulevard is a daily destination for runners and cyclists looking to connect up to the Old Dominion and Curtis trails; for picnickers taking advantage of the public pavilions, tables, and charcoal grills; for local families making use of the playgrounds; and for tennis players playing a few sets on the public courts.

But the park has also long been a prized destination for weddings because of its lovely rose garden overseen by the Arlington Rose Foundation. In addition to the magnificent rose display, you’ll find azaleas, ornamental trees, and other specimen plants that are a draw for local pollinators, as well as local selfie enthusiasts.
