City of Alexandria Schedules All Veterans Park Volunteer Day on November 9
For Immediate Release: November 2, 2017
The community is invited to join the City of Alexandria and the United States Coast Guard (USCG) in a morning of volunteer service at All Veterans Park in honor of Alexandria veterans on Thursday, November 9. All Veterans Park is near the intersection of Pickett Street and Holmes Run Parkway. Community members interested in participating are invited to visit the park between 9 a.m. and noon and assist with park clean-up activities including flower bed maintenance, overlook deck staining and invasive plant species removal. Light refreshments will be available and clean-up activities will occur rain or shine.
All Veterans Park is found along the same linear stretch of parks that straddle the Holmes Run Stream and is on the south bank of Holmes Run, across from Brookvalley Park. The two parks are connected by the Charles Beatley Bridge which was dedicated in honor of Alexandria's former Mayor Beatley. A trail meanders through the park and past the Memorial placard. On the northern edge, the trail parallels the water of Holmes Run. An observation deck built on the bank can be used to view the Bicentennial Tree across the Run.
To register to participate in this event, please complete a volunteer application.
