Rosslyn Highlands is located behind the Rosslyn Fire Station on Wilson Blvd.  This  park can be accessed by N. Quinn or N. Oak Street (off Wilson Blvd).  At this park is a large playground structure with a few slides, climbing area, tic-tac-toe and a pole to slide down.  This park is ideal for parents that have busy kids, as it is fenced in.

Right next to the playground is a basketball court.  During our time at this park, there were a handful of kids riding some of their ride on toys on the court.  Unfortunately there are not any bathrooms at this park.  There are benches and a picnic table as well some shaded areas . Nearby is a parking lot, but it is for the Fire Station only.  There is plenty of metered parking along the streets, that’s where we parked.  If you live nearby, I recommend visiting this park and letting the kids play and explore.
