About the Project

This is a Capital Maintenance project that renovated picnic shelter #2 (shelter closest to playground and restroom), the open picnic area, and the parking area. All renovated facilities were brought up to current ADA and Stormwater Management requirements (see links below). The project comprised the replacement of the existing shelter at Glencarlyn Park, parking area renovations, and related site improvements. Over the lifetime of the existing shelter, the surrounding tree canopy has matured, while the regulatory requirements for work in the Four Mile Run floodplain have increased. Thus this project addressed some unique challenges to provide a better experience for community users.

Arlington County is committed to being both stewards to our environment and providing access to our facilities for people of all abilities.
