Because the Vienna Metro Station is just a short, five-minute drive from Lerner ArrowoodParc, you’ll never be too far from your favorite local stomping grounds. One example is Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, which is a convenient commute from the Lerner ArrowoodParc. “[I] cannot say enough what a pleasant, beautiful place the Meadowlark gardens are,” writes one commenter of Arlington. “We have been members since we moved here several years ago, and will go there for an afternoon picnic … and relaxing strolls through their woods.” The fullness of the Gardens’ beauty makes it the perfect place to spend a spring day in Virginia. But even in the more frigid seasons, the Gardens make for the perfect day out. At Meadowlarks’s Winter Walk of Lights, you and the kids can take part in Nature Night, and meet your newest reptile and amphibian friends, or make a free craft ornament to hang up on the tree. Whatever the season, the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens is the place to spend your day out in Vienna.

A convenient commute from the Lerner ArrowoodParc is the Oak Marr RECenter. The newly renovated and expanded center offers a 10,000-square-foot hub for all your fitness needs. This includes an Olympic-sized, heated indoor pool and two-story fitness center with all new exercise equipment. But don’t spend the entire day cooped up inside!The facilities also feature the Oak Marr Golf Course, in all its 9-hole, 1,458 yards of natural splendor. After prepping for your round at the course’s neighboring practice facilities, enjoy an afternoon of hole-in-ones and deft puts on this par-3, golfer-friendly course. But if a pressure-filled round of golf doesn’t fit your idea of a relaxing afternoon, then spend some time at Oak Marr’s highly-rated practicing facilities. Take some putts on Northern Virginia’s largest lighted putt-practice area, and learn from some of the complex’s nationally-renowned experts. The complex also includes a minigolf course, which opens as early as 10 in the morning. Its 18-hole layout lets you flex your competitive muscles in a low-pressure, considerably flatter, though still scenic, environment. The Oak Marr RECenter’s offerings are as diverse as the shots you’ll hit on its golfing facilities.
