Ceremonies to Celebrate Renovated Park, New Project in Falls Church

City officials and community members in Falls Church are gearing up to celebrate the recent renovation of one park and the start of work on another one this Saturday (Dec. 7).

The events kick off with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. at the new Broad Street entrance (601 W. Broad Street) for the Howard E. Herman Stream Valley Park, according to a press release from the city.

The park recently underwent renovation and restoration efforts, which included adding a new arched park sign, benches, pathway, pedestrian bridge and stream daylighting.

After the ribbon cutting, a groundbreaking ceremony will take place at around noon for the improvement project at Big Chimneys Park (210 Gibson Street).

The work is set to start this month and will include installing new play equipment, improving the drainage at the south end of the park and adding an accessible trail from the Winter Hill neighborhood, according to the press release.

Mayor David Tarter is expected to speak at both events, along with Recreation and Parks Advisory Board Chair Charley O’Hara and other community leaders.

Attendees who would like to get a ride between the parks can use the bus that will be available after the ribbon cutting and groundbreaking ceremonies, according to the press release.
