Located high above the city just north of US-35 and near Gettysburg Ave, this smaller, mixed-use neighborhood has great views of downtown.
Arlington Heights contains a mix of one and two-story homes, including bungalow and American foursquare architectural styles. Its proximity to W. Third Street makes this neighborhood convenient to walk or drive to several restaurants and businesses, including the Westown Shopping Center.
Arlington Heights is also home to The Wright Company Factory Site, the first factory in America built for manufacturing airplanes. Dayton Metro Library is currently constructing a new West Branch Library next to the Wright Company Factory Site. Expected to open in 2021, this new community asset will be in the heart of the Arlington Heights neighborhood.
On the western boundary of the neighborhood, Arlington Heights Park includes greenspace, basketball courts, and a playground. This neighborhood’s location next to US-35 gives it unique re-development opportunities and offers easy access to all major freeways in the region.
