Daytime Tysons Parks Plan Meeting

Do you work in Tysons? If so, we really want to hear your thoughts on what park and recreational opportunities should exist in the Tysons of the future. Please stop in and meet with Fairfax County Park Authority planning staff at the Tysons Parks Open House, Thursday, May 29, 2014 from 12:15 p.m. until 1:30 p.m. Stop in and learn about park planning for the Tysons area. This is a great opportunity to tell planners what you want to see. The informal gathering will be held at Tysons Pimmit Regional Library located at 7584 Leesburg Pike in Falls Church, VA.

The Park Authority published the Draft Tysons Park System Concept Plan last month, putting in motion the opportunity for public review and comment on this planning document. The Tysons Park System Concept Plan will guide future park development by the public, private and non-profit sectors that will serve Tyson’s residents, workforce and visitors well into the future. The plan is available online A 60-day public comment period closes on June 16, 2014.

I work in Tysons and have to say, these are probably the most inconvenient places to have meetings about cycling. Spring Hill Elementary is outside of the Dulles Toll Road. What that means is that you can't get there safely from here. Tysons Pimmit library is inside the beltway. While it is much easier to get to via bike, the only route I know would be to go back out of Tysons, down Gallows and back to the W&OD - all so that you don't need to cross the Beltway there. At lunchtime, on a work day, it's a no-go. I appreciate the sentiment, but these seem to define the mess that Tysons has become.
