City of Alexandria Solicits Naming Suggestions for New Park at Foot of King Street
The City of Alexandria is soliciting suggestions for the name of the new park at the foot of King Street. The public is invited to participate in an online survey now through November 16, and a public hearing on November 15.
The new park will serve as the keystone to the revitalization of the Potomac River waterfront in Alexandria. Construction is currently underway to join the original King Street Park site with the sites of the former Old Dominion Boat Club building and parking lot, to create an interim park that will open in fall 2018. The interim park will feature an open plaza, a waterfront promenade, shade structures, and a modular space that can adapt to different purposes throughout the year.
