About the Project

Rosslyn Highlands Park + is a dynamic park in the heart of Rosslyn. The park is one component of an even bigger project that includes a school, residential and office development.

In the fall of 2015, Arlington County worked with the community to develop a conceptual plan for a new Rosslyn Highlands Park and the other public spaces associated with the Western Rosslyn Area Plan (WRAPS).

These spaces include an open space at the NE corner of 18th and Quinn Streets and related spaces.

The RHP+ Coordinated Open Space Plan guided the design and construction of the park spaces.  Staff appreciates the many contributions made by community members and users of the park.  

About the Process

There will be many opportunities for public input, including community workshops, public meetings and online engagement. The full project timeline is displayed in the graphic below.
