We're welcoming spring with an array of outdoor activities for you to enjoy throughout the neighborhood!
With springtime on the horizon, there's no better place to take advantage of the warmer weather than outdoors in Rosslyn! Through Rosslyn Refresh, the BID welcomes residents, employees and visitors to get outside safely with fun activities and events throughout the neighborhood. Through giveaways, flower markets, our public parks (check out the new interim dog park!), the return of O2: Outdoor Office and more, Rosslyn has the events (both virtual and in-person) you need to shake off the winter blues.
And in case you noticed anything new in the neighborhood, we’ve also sprinkled fun, over-the-top, faux flower installations across Rosslyn! Make sure to use hashtag #RosslynRefresh when sharing these decorations on social media (don't forget to tag us, @RosslynVA) along 1550 Wilson Blvd, 1100 Wilson Blvd, and the Esplanade. And make sure you “swing” by Central Place Plaza for the perfect spring photo opp in a magic garden!
