Van Gogh Bridge is a wooden footbridge linking the Washington Plaza with the Waterview Cluster at the Lake Anne Village Center. Set along a running route through Lake Anne Plaza, this bridge was inspired by its namesake’s famous paintings of Arles, France. It was added to encourage residents to be outdoors as well as connect residential Reston with commercial buildings, schools, and playgrounds. Although a marvelous site year-round, Van Gogh Bridge is most captivating in the springtime as its surrounding trees create beautiful blooms reminiscent of the famous Dutch artist’s light and colorful masterpieces.
