|Event Details:||The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities PARKnership program will hold a community workshop with Rebuilding Together Alexandria to discuss improving:
•3550 Commonwealth Ave.
The 0.58 acre site had previously been a dormant substation. The City’s purchase of the property in 2009 required that Virginia Electric Power Company demolish and remove the substation and complete all necessary environmental remediation. In October 2011, neighborhood volunteers used donated plants and mulch to install two gardens, a walking path, shade trees and park benches. In 2016 the City completed the Neighborhood Parks Improvement Plan that includes a design for the park, building upon the volunteer efforts, with a plaza and game tables, a tricycle track and picnic area. The funding from Rebuilding Together Alexandria will go towards implementation of this plan.
•Four Mile Run Park at Dale St.
This section of Four Mile Run Park is located along Dale Street, behind Cora Kelly Elementary School and Recreation Center. The 2014 Citywide Parks Improvement Plan recommended transforming the currently vacant space into a community garden. A new community garden will help address the City’s need for gardening opportunities in the Arlandria community. The funds from Rebuilding Together Alexandria will be used towards a design and implementation of the garden through collaborative effort between the Park’s neighboring residents and organizations.
