RESTON, VA - After two years of engaging with community members, stakeholders, and community organizations, the Reston National Study Group released its vision for the future of the Reston National Golf Course.

This vision proposes a conservancy that establishes a genuine permanent open space for everyone in the community to enjoy and benefit from. A half-mile linear park will also be created, offering room for a wide range of neighborhood activities. Finally, a neighborhood-scale village will introduce new walkable services, shopping, and community gathering places. 

The owners of the Reston National Golf Course are asking for feedback from the community about the vision to allow for a plan to begin to be developed that includes the community as a partner. Feedback can be given at
