Aesthetic Benefits

Forty acres of mature trees and dense stream valley provide a beautiful tree-lined separation between Tysons urban center, the Silver Line metro, and the adjacent suburban neighborhoods.  It also provides a magnificent view for all the businesses and employees in the heart of Tysons.

As intended by Fairfax County throughout the decades, the aesthetic benefits of Tysons Last Forest serve both the casual observer and the nearby resident:

The Old Courthouse Spring Branch Environmental Quality Corridor (EQC), Raglan Road Park, Freedom Hill Park and other publicly owned land form the western boundary of the West Side District. This portion of the district provides a visual and physical separation between Tysons Corner and the adjacent neighborhoods. The Old Courthouse Spring Branch EQC, which has been preserved with its dense vegetation, provides a substantial barrier from the Dulles Airport Access Road (DAAR) southward toward Gosnell Road.
