Donaldson Run

One of the most charming neighborhoods in Arlington, Virginia, Donaldson Run has a secluded neighborhood feel even though it is only minutes away from the Washington, D.C..  It is nestled between Old Dominion Drive, the Washington Golf and Country Club, and Potomac Overlook Regional Park.  The neighborhood mostly consists of single family homes nestled amongst trees with a couple of churches, Taylor Elementary School, and Marymount University.  Donaldson Run can be very hilly in parts with the homes built up on sloping landscapes.  The Donaldson Run stream runs through the neighborhood from Marymount University to Potomac Overlook Regional Park and the Potomac River.  There is a trail that runs alongside the stream that serves as a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.
