Arlington Parks and Recreation is proud to celebrate its centennial in 2024, as the department commemorates the 100th anniversary of Meadowbrook Park and Meadowbrook Park Golf Course. 

This year promises even more #NaturallyFun than usual, with a calendar full of special events, self-led activities, historical features, spotlights, giveaways and more! The department is even capping off the year with the ribbon cutting of a new destination playground at Meadowbrook Park, scheduled to open this fall.

Residents are encouraged to join in celebrating the centennial by sharing your favorite parks and recreation memories and photographs on the centennial website. Whether it's a memory from the family reunion you held at one of the parks, a picture of your kids touching home plate for the first time, or a selfie from your morning jog, send them in! Your memories are our heritage – help keep the spirit alive. Also be sure to tag us at @ArlingtonParks on the department's Facebook account, it's Twitter page and Instagram, or use the hashtags #APRD100 and #NaturallyFun. 

Upcoming events include the Longest Day of Play on Thursday, June 20, 2024, and Light Up Arlington on Saturday, June 29, 2024. For more info on these events, visit:
