Designated Reduced Mowing Zones

Consistent with the City Council adoption of the FY 2017 (July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017) operating budget, the Department of Recreation, Parks & Cultural Activities (RPCA) implemented gradual transition of some non-active use park areas to natural lands.  Portions of City parks were selected for this transition to minimize impact on the active use of the parks, such as ball fields, playgrounds, picnic shelters, and tennis/basketball courts, etc.  In addition to cost savings, the planned Natural Area Transition Zones support the principles of sustainability and energy use reductions embedded in the City’s Eco-City Charter and the Environmental Action Plan. RPCA actively promotes the planting of the native plant species, native wildflowers and sustainable landscapes in these transition zones.

Facility & Outdoor Maintenance Use Agreements

  • City of Alexandria and Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS)
    In 1997, City of Alexandria’s City Manager and Superintendent of Alexandria City Public Schools adopted a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which outlined the shared maintenance roles and responsibilities for the two organizations. A combined management team reviews the MOU annually and modifications are implemented as needed.
