City of Alexandria to Host Opening Ceremony for Four Mile Run Park Wetlands Bridge 

For Immediate Release: November 14, 2019

The City of Alexandria invites the public to celebrate the opening of the Four Mile Run Park Wetlands Bridge on Sunday, November 24, at 2 p.m. The ceremony will include remarks by City officials and partners, a ribbon cutting ceremony, and an overview of park improvements by City staff. The event will occur rain or shine at the east side of the bridge, closest to the parking lot at 3700 Commonwealth Ave. 

The 120-foot long bridge spans over a tributary in Four Mile Run Park, connecting the eastern ballfield area to the wetlands and completing a one-kilometer loop through the park. The installation of the bridge is a significant element of the Four Mile Run Restoration Plan, which improves connectivity throughout the park. The bridge is now open and provides access to the wetlands, which were restored in 2016 for walking, passive enjoyment, and ecological education programming.
