Ashton Heights Walkabout
Situated in the geographic heart of Arlington County, this residential community dates back to the early 1900s. Ashton Heights grew up around the Clarendon electric trolley station and is noted for its eclectic architecture and strong conservation sensibility. This Walkabout begins and ends at the ever-fascinating Arlington Arts Center, a great addition to your tour, and passes by the home of longtime County Board member and avid walker, Jay Fisette.
Length: 1.75 miles
Terrain: Relatively flat and easy, through a quiet residential neighborhood
Car-Free Access - Arlington Arts Center is one block from Virginia Square-GMU Metro station on the Orange Line
Acknowledgements: Created with Jay Fisette, Arlington County Board.
