A Message from the Mayor
Alexandria is a caring community that promotes healthy lifestyles and physical fitness for individuals, families and our youth. With warm weather approaching, and vacation plans being made, I encourage you to take advantage of the leisure opportunities right here at home.
Visit Alexandria’s newest park, Potomac Yard, featuring a universally accessible playground; interactive ground level fountain; open lawn and picnic areas; and active recreation courts for tennis, basketball and volleyball. As a part of the region’s open space system, this park celebrates the evolution of a former rail yard into a new 24 acre regional park.
Join me on Saturday, July 12 at Oronoco Bay Park to celebrate the USA’s 238th and the City of Alexandria’s 265th Birthday. Featuring refreshments, birthday cake, musical performances and Grand Finale Fireworks Display, this premier summer event continues to be a family tradition. Visit www.alexandriava.gov/Recreation for a complete list of City community events and activities.
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.
