Vienna's Town Green

It's not a "Town Square", it's a "Town Green". And this spring & summer, it's the place to be. So be there or be square!

The Vienna Town Green was established in 2007 and has been a lovely addition to the landscape of "downtown Vienna". Just over 2 acres in size, you'll find it on Maple Avenue - right next to where the W&OD Trail crosses Route 123 - across the street from Whole Foods. The Green also backs up to the historic Freeman House and original Vienna Library (two more interesting sites in Vienna!)

The plaza sits right on Vienna's main thoroughfare and the highlight of the plaza is the fountains.
When the weather is warm, you'll see kids frolicking and even grownups dipping in a toe. (My dog likes it too!)

There's a lovely expanse of lawn that leads back from the fountains.

It's the perfect place for a family picnic after work or even a romantic date. And better yet, at the back of the lawn you'll find a small amphitheater.
This is the site of Vienna's "Concerts on the Green" series. And the concerts are FREE!

You'll find a huge variety of entertainment. There's something for everyone. So bring your blanket or chair, your picnic basket, your frisbee, your family & friends and enjoy! (And by the way, the Town of Vienna has a pilot project going on to try out free wi-fi at the Town Green. So bring your laptop and move your office outdoors this summer!)
