Hope everyone had a great long weekend- here are some ideas for the upcoming week!


Tuesday, May 31st    Bon Air Park Memorial Rose Garden

One of Arlington’s best kept secrets, the Bon Air Memorial Rose garden is one of the largest rose gardens on the East Coast.  During World War II, the Arlington Rose Foundation wanted to create a living memorial dedicated to those who served their country.  The garden is about one acre, with several other gardens surrounding the area.  Over 135 different rose varieties and 2,500 plants can be found within the boundaries Bon Air Park.  It is a great place for photos!  They also have a fun playground, and plenty of room for young legs to run!  The park is located at the corner of North Lexington and Wilson Boulevard, at 850 North Lexington Street in Arlington (between Upton Hill and George Mason).
