Arlington is a vibrant city that enjoys a high quality of life through great parks and exceptional recreational opportunities. These services provide a foundation for the physical, social, economic and environmental viability and well-being of the community.


The mission of the Arlington Parks and Recreation Department is to provide quality facilities and services that are responsive to a diverse community and sustained with a focus on partnerships, innovation and environmental leadership.

Master Plan

The Arlington Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan (PROS Plan) is a key component of the City’s vision for the Arlington community. The PROS Plan recommends a vision and an action plan that directly supports Arlington’s Comprehensive Plan, 99 SQ Miles: A Vision for Arlington’s Future. The parks department's most recent PROS plan was approved by city council in April 2021.
