A Message from the Mayor
With warm weather approaching, and vacation plans being
made, I encourage you to take advantage of the leisure opportunities right here
The City continues to expand program opportunities for every
member of family at any skill and interest level. This summer, youth can take advantage of
thirteen new weeklong camps featuring art and dance themed camps, Minecraft,
LEGO® and pool patrol. Family members can choose from thirty new programs
including nature activities, creative & performing arts classes, adult
softball and racquetball tournaments and youth sport classes.
Join me on Saturday, July 11 at Oronoco Bay Park to
celebrate the USA’s 239th and the City of Alexandria’s 266th Birthday.
Featuring refreshments, birthday cake, musical performances and Grand Finale
Fireworks Display, this premier summer event continues to be a family
tradition. Visit alexandriava.gov/Recreation for a complete list of community
events, activities and summer concerts.
I continue to be active in Recreation Department programs,
and I encourage all residents of Alexandria to take advantage of the activities
and facilities the Department offers. Save this Program Guide and refer to it often.
