For Immediate Release: August 30, 2012

Dora Kelley Park Trail Re-Surfacing Project

In early August 2012, the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities installed a pervious "Flexi-Pave" trail through Dora Kelley Park, improving the connection to Chambliss Park.

The surface material has continuous voids to allow stormwater to pass through, reducing the frequent flooding and erosion issues that had previously occurred along the trail. Additionally, the material used for the new trail is comprised of 1,597 recycled rubber passenger tires. If stacked in a landfill the tires would be 1,300 feet tall!

We want to know what you think of the project. Please visit http://alexandriava.gov/64152  to complete a survey. 

For additional information, contact Dana Wedeles with the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities at 703.746.5491 or dana.wedeles@alexandriava.gov.
