What: Join WalkArlington as we debut our Walkabout through Arlington’s Old Glebe neighborhood and offer a sneak preview of new interpretive features at Fort Ethan Allen showcasing Arlington's role in Civil War history. Starting at Madison Community Center, this guided walking tour explores ten stops and nearly two miles of neighborhood highlights, from the interpretive exhibits now being installed at Fort Ethan Allen to the historic crossroads of Military Road and Chain Bridge, from the well-trodden trails of Gulf Branch Nature Center to the peaceful grounds of Walker Chapel. Free of charge and open to all ages, WalkArlington’s Old Glebe Walkabout is co-hosted by the Arlington County Office of Historic Preservation and the Old Glebe Civic Association, along with residents who helped develop the route. Visit or contact for more information and/or for updates in the event of inclement weather.

The Old Glebe Walkabout is the third in our limited edition series of Walk Friendly Community Walkabouts, created in recognition of Arlington’s 2011 designation as a Gold-Level Walk Friendly Community.

WalkArlington is a proud partner of FitArlington, promoting a culture of fitness in Arlington, and Arlington's Car Free Diet, making it easy to go car-free or car-lite.
