City of Alexandria Park and Recreation Commission

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities commissions and committees compose a formal system through which citizens can advise City Council on issues affecting the City. All meetings open to the public. Position vacancies are advertised in the local newspapers and through civic associations. For a list of vacancies, to submit an application or for additional information, visit Boards & Commissions.

The Park and Recreation Commission is an eleven-member advisory unit established by City Council in March 1970. The Commission advises City Council in matters relating to parkland, recreation and culture, and participates in planning recreational activities and services through its advice to Council, and the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities. The members of the Park and Recreation Commission are selected to represent one of the three Park Districts in the City and two youth representatives. The Commission meets the third Thursday of each month at 7 pm. For additional information call 703.746.5500.
