City of Alexandria, VA
Waterfront Activities & Events
The Plan retains and strengthens the long-standing goal of "where land meets water, the public is welcome" by planning for continuous access and accessibility along the river. The Plan calls for continued investment in our existing parks, inspired by art, history, and the environment, and adding small scale active recreation in many locations along the waterfront. Through implementation of the Plan, the Alexandria waterfront will continue and improve in terms of accomodating large gatherings and events, through active programming of existing and new parks and creating better designed spaces for recreation throughout the Plan area. Please check back often to learn about activities and events along the waterfront.
