What New Bicycle Facilities Are Needed at Lake Accotink?Lake Accotink Master Plan. There is considerable discussion about the condition of the lake with an option of allowing the lake to "disappear" with nature taking its course. The CCT crosses through the park and the park literature states they rent
This is your opportunity to provide the park authority with comments and suggestion about what bicycle facility improvements you would like to see added to the park. Some possible suggestions would be a tire air station, adding bicycle signs and safety markings to the access road, and designating an area for a bicycle safety "school".
Proposing bicycle needs and improvements at informational meetings is the first step in getting items included in a park master plan.
If you have suggestion for bicycle improvements at Lake Accotink, please attend a Fairfax County Park Authority hosted community workshop on Thursday, October 27, 2016, to help determine the kinds of facilities and programming the community finds most valuable.
Members of the public are invited to stop by Kings Park Elementary School between 7 and 8:30 p.m. Participants can move at their own pace through a series of workshop stations that will help to clarify the types of facilities and programs they feel are most important. Participants should allow about 30 minutes to answer the workshop questions. Park Authority staff will provide a brief update on the overall project at 7 p.m.
Kings Park Elementary School is located at 5400 Harrow Way, Springfield, Va.
