about Potomac Overlook Regional Park & Nature Center:
On the Potomac Palisades in north Arlington, Potomac Overlook offers 70 acres of peaceful woodland. Potomac Overlook's Nature Center serves as the regional center for the Park Authority's year-round programs of outdoor adventure and environmental education. Youth and nature-oriented groups and schools may make arrangements for special programs. The Nature Center houses wildlife and archeological displays, an auditorium, and naturalists' offices. You'll also find nature trails, a full schedule of programs, hikes, and concerts. Families can host birthday parties in the Nature Center's auditorium that include a hands-on nature program. The Park also offers summer camps for children in 2nd through 7th grades.
