Westover Walkabout

Westover walks the walk in living up to its motto, “We take time to care.” Located in the western section of Arlington County, Westover was mostly farmland until 1940, when plots were subdivided for housing, the Westover Shopping Center was built, and Claude A. Swanson Junior High (now Middle) School opened. By 1952, Westover and adjacent neighborhoods looked much as they do today.

  • Length: Approximately 2 miles
  • Terrain: Rolling, with winding residential streets, two wide connecting boulevards, and easy access to paved trails
  • Car-Free Access
    To get to the start of each Walkabout route, there are plenty of car-free options.  Visit CarFreeNearMe to determine which of those options, from Capital Bikeshare to ART to Metro, is best for you.
