The City has announced reopening phases for programs and services offered by the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities. The timing of the reopening phases is anticipated to align with the phases in the Governor’s “Forward Virginia” blueprint for Northern Virginia, but is subject to change.

Looking for ways to challenge your mind and body while connecting with your community? Virtual programming options are now available! Enjoy free performances, fitness classes, poetry readings, and activities for youth. New programs are being added regularly, so check back often.

Under the “Forward Virginia” Reopening Plan, Governor Northam has authorized limited services during Phase I, including a provision for fitness and exercise services in outdoor spaces. Through a modified park rental process, Alexandria fitness businesses will have access to specific public park sites for Alexandria businesses to offer outdoor fitness services.

All unfenced City of Alexandria parks, trails and fields remain open to the public to provide opportunities for safe, physically distant exercise. When visiting parks, follow guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
