Fairfax County Park Authority Briefs Community On New Park Plan Ahead of 10/30 Vote

On Wednesday, October 17, representatives from the Fairfax County Park Authority briefed members of the Azalea Park Steering Committee and the Greater Hillwood Citizens Association on a revised plan to revitalize Azalea Park.

The improvement plan was designed by the Fairfax County Park Authority relying on feedback from the Azalea Park Steering Committee and inspired by the results of a community survey distributed to the Hillwood community in May 2018. Key features of the plan include:

  • New swing set structure with 2 bucket swings and 2 banana-style swings

  • A fenced in playground structure for children ages 2-5

  • A separate playground structure for children ages 5-12 including a rope climbing feature

  • An adult exercise station

  • Two new picnic tables, including an additional handicap accessible picnic table on a cement pad

A vote to approve the final plan is scheduled for Tuesday, October 30 at 7:00pm in the Kastle Building, Suite 1100. All members of the community are encouraged to vote on October 30. You must have paid your dues for 2018 to the Greater Hillwood Citizens Association in order for your vote to count in full. Please visit www.greaterhillwood.com/dues to pay your dues before October 30.
