Potomac Overlook Regional Park

Park in Arlington, VA | Outdoors | For Kids of All Ages

Potomac Overlook Regional Park is a wonderful Nature Center with trails, live animals, play areas and live birds of prey. Accessibility Note: The Center is accessible but there is a 0.3 mile walk down a hill to get to the center from the parking lot. You could drive down and drop off I believe which would be much easier!
