Join Focus the Fox and his cousin Clara as they explore Courthouse in Arlington. This short walk is perfect for early elementary-age children to do with a grown up. It features places of interest in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington that are fun and welcoming for a child.
Mary has called Arlington home for more than ten years. She loves being outdoors, and can often be found running or biking on one of Arlington’s many beautiful trails. She is currently the Program Manager for WalkArlington.
Focus the Fox was excited. His favorite cousin, Clara, was coming over to take him for a day out on the town. Clara arrived right on time.
As they walked up the hill on Wilson Blvd., the foxes spotted a big red bike parked at a bike rack.
The foxes continued up the hill toward the center of town until they reached the post office.
“I’m hungry,” said Focus.
After finishing their meal, Clara and Focus crossed the street to discover a small green space on a traffic island.
They walked for a little bit until they spotted a lovely garden offering all sorts of discoveries.
They left the garden and headed toward an outdoor plaza. Focus remembered that he had come here before to go to the movies.
Clara saw the time on the big clock and realized that it was starting to get late.
Focus and Clara arrived at Rocky Run to find Grandma and Grandpa waiting for them at the entrance.
It was a fun and interesting walk to do with my 6 year old. I used to live in that neighborhood and learned new things I hadn't known before!
