Lyon Park is privately-owned by the residents of the Lyon Park neighborhood. It is not Arlington County property. The rates below apply only to renters who live in Lyon Park or Ashton Heights. Proof of residency must be submitted with the signed contract and paid security deposit. Lyon Park and Ashton Heights residents may not sponsor non-resident events at these rates.
Renters may bring in tents and inflatables if additional requirements are met. Permission must be stipulated in the contract and grounds preservation fees added to the rent. Grounds preservation fees are required to offset damage to the grounds. Inflatables may only be rented from Arlington TEAM. We do not allow any water features. No-one can erect a tent or inflatable in Lyon Park without renting the building at the same time.
Because paying renters normally also use the park itself, large parties may not set up in the park without also renting the building. Send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
