Round II on Hunter-Miller Park

Tomrrow (Tuesday, August 7) the City will hold the second meeting on the redesign of Hunter/Miller Park. The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Durant Center, located at 1605 Cameron Street.

At the June 7 playground meeting two rather different designs were presented by Recreation and Parks Deputy Director Roger Blakeley and landscape architect Judy Lo.

Meeting participants suggested combining the best features of both, so on Tuesday night we'll see the new hybrid scheme. There's going to be new surfacing, new play equipment, and more seating for parents and chaperones, but no permanent picnic tables. In response to popular requests the design includes a trike path for the wee ones.

The renovations are tentatively scheduled to begin later this year or early next year.

For questions and comments contact Ms. Lo at (703) 838-5041 x438 or drop her an E-mail at Judy.Lo@alexandriava.gov. Otherwise, we'll see you Tuesday!
