Hume Springs Park Design Workshop TODAY!

Feedback compiled on HS Park (page 1)

Design Workshop for Hume Springs Neighborhood Park Plan TODAY Saturday, December 13

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities is hosting a public design workshop for the Hume Springs Neighborhood Park Plan this afternoon (Saturday, December 13) at 1 p.m. at the Cora Kelly Recreation Center, 25 West Reed Ave.  
The workshop will include a review of feedback received from the Hume Springs Park survey and a park design charrette.
Hume Springs Park is one of 17 existing neighborhood parks currently being planned for through the park planning process.  The results of this plan will help determine budgeting priorities and recommendations for both short and long-term incremental improvements, ensuring that neighborhood parks serve Alexandria’s needs now and into the future.  For additional information, visit the Neighborhood Park Planning website.
In conjunction with the park planning process, RunningBrooke of Alexandria is partnering with the City to help fund improvements to Hume Springs Park and playground.  This workshop will assist in developing the scope of work for their contribution.  Park improvements anticipated to be under construction in Summer-Fall 2015. 
The City has compiled comments on Hume Springs Park. The summary can be found on the City's website. During the next three months, this summary will be combined with additional data to help guide draft recommendations for park improvements and ultimately be incorporated into a “Neighborhood Parks Improvement Plan.”
