Living in Harmony wit
Not many cities in the United States have the designation as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat Community. While it is usually individuals that attempt to share their yards with native mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and plants, the entire town of Reston has made every effort to allow nature to flourish alongside humans. For those people who would like to explore natural Virginia a little more, Reston is home to a number of large city parks. Lake Fairfax Park is a great place to go to enjoy swimming, fishing, hiking, sports, camping and, of course, wildlife viewing.
Like most cities, Reston has plenty of citywide events to keep the kids happy and entertained. Additionally, Reston has plenty of celebrations geared specifically for its adult residents. From spring until fall, residents can enjoy getting together with friends and neighbors for a different party nearly every weekend. There are free concerts, art shows, wine and beer festivals, and culinary parties that will make your taste buds dance. These events are a great way to meet people whether you are new in town or not, so be sure to check out the town's calendar, so you do not miss any of the fun.
