Community Pre-Construction Meeting and Construction Work Scheduled at Woodbine Tot Lot
For Immediate Release: February 27, 2020
City of Alexandria Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities will
renovate Woodbine Tot Lot in partnership
with the Make-A-Wish Foundation mid-March
A community pre-construction meeting with City staff and the contractor is
scheduled for Saturday, March 7 at 10 a.m. at Woodbine Tot Lot (1509 Woodbine St.).
Make-A-Wish Foundation America approached the City of Alexandria with a wish from Whitaker, a local four-year-old undergoing cancer treatment. Whitaker's favorite place to play is at the Woodbine Tot Lot and he has asked to renovate the playground to make it extra special for himself and his neighborhood friends. The new playground design aligns with the Pocket Parks Improvement Plan and will feature a bright red fire engine play structure. The project is partially funded by the City’s Community Matching Fund program.
