Fort Ward Interpretive Plan
The goal of this project is to expand interpretation in Fort Ward Park to include the full range of its history, especially including the African American experience and the post-Civil War Fort community. Fort Ward's Civil War history will remain a core theme, but new elements will explore the legacy of that pivotal era.
The City of Alexandria has retained the firm of Design Minds of Fairfax, Virginia to prepare a Master Interpretive Plan for Fort Ward Park. On January 18, consultants held a public meeting with members of the Fort Ward Interpretive Committee and the community to present initial approaches to this Plan. The public is invited to attend meetings of the Fort Ward Interpretive Committee which are announced on the Calendar of Events for the City and the Office of Historic Alexandria.
Fort Ward Area Management Plan
The Fort Ward Park & Museum Area Management Plan was adopted in 2015. In May 2015 City Council passed a resolution to establish an Ad Hoc Fort Ward Park and Museum Area Management Plan Implementation Monitoring Group.
