Ribbon Cutting at Virginia Highlands Park, Sun Mar 13, 1pm

The renovations at Virginia Highlands Park are now complete! Celebrate at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, Sunday March 13th, 1pm - 2:30pm.

Virginia Highlands Park is located at 1600 S. Hayes Street, Arlington, VA 22202.

The ribbon cutting ceremony will include fun activities for kids and adults including a tennis drill clinic for kids and adults hosted by FirstServe Tennis Academy and a basketball clinic for kids with shooting and dribbling instructions that will culminate into fun group games hosted by Tiptop Sports. 

About the project: built using Capital Maintenance Program funds, the courts and community fields have been renovated, lighting for each has been replaced and new site furnishings and accessible paths have been installed. Additional features include shade structures, a drinking fountain and water filler, bleacher seating for the grass field, a junior half court, new pedestrian access to the restroom and parking lots, and new landscaping. 

This 18-acre park is packed with opportunities for fun. There are two adult lighted diamond fields (permit only fields), six lighted tennis courts, two lighted basketball courts, and volleyball court, natural grass rectangular community field, lighted rectangular synthetic field (permits take priority), a sprayground to cool off in the hot summer, three petanque courts, and a frost-free drinking fountain
