Alexandria, Va. —The George Washington Memorial Parkway(GWMP), part of the national park system, invites you to help chart the future of Jones Point Park. The National Park Service (NPS) will evaluate the existing condition and uses of Jones Point Park and, with public input, will develop a set of recommendations for desired recreational experiences.

A series of open houses will identify potential recreational and programming uses for Jones Point Park. All three meetings will offer the opportunity to provide ideas to the project team on the existing use of the park and to specify the types of activities and programs people would like. The meetings are as follows:

 Saturday, November 7, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Jones Point Park. Please note that the event is planned to take place outside under the Wilson Bridge. In case of inclement weather, portions of the meeting will take place in the Visitor Comfort Station under the Wilson Bridge. Parking is available at the site.

 Monday, November 9, 2015 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Nannie J. Lee Memorial Recreation Center, at 1108 Jefferson St, in Alexandria, Va. Parking is available at the site.

 Tuesday, November 10, 2015 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Kate Waller Barrett Branch Library, 717 Queen Street, in Alexandria, Va. On-street parking is available.
