Ribbon Cutting: Harbor Drive Wellness Park
June 4, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join us as we celebrate an incredible revitalization project, at the Ribbon Cutting for Harbor Drive Wellness Park on June 4, from 11 am to 1 pm. What had been an abandoned commuter lot is now a vibrant park featuring Prince William County’s first universally-accessible playground and fitness equipment designed to be enjoyed by residents of all ages and physical abilities. Guests are asked to park at Ebenezer Baptist Church (13020 Telegraph Road; map below), where PWC Police will direct pedestrian across Minnieville to the park.
Festivities will include recreational activities led by Prince William County Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism and fun giveaways. You’ll also hear from some of the people involved in making the park a reality, with remarks from Parks & Rec, Kaiser Permanente (park sponsor), Supervisor Kenny Boddye and other community leaders.
The 2.5 acre park also features meadows, a pollinator garden with interpretive signage, programming and a one-mile paved trail that will connect pedestrians and cyclists to Kaiser’s new medical campus off Caton Hill and to the K9 Gunner Dog Park. Many of these planned features reflect community input gathered during an 18-month collaborative public design process funded by Kaiser.
“With a walking trail, plenty of open space, and outdoor fitness equipment, this new park will provide great fitness and recreational opportunities to Prince William residents,” said Occoquan District Supervisor Kenny Boddye. “We appreciate Kaiser Permanente’s support in bringing this new park to fruition, and to the members of County staff who have been working tirelessly on this project through these challenging times, which have also underscored how parks can bring us together and enrich our lives.”
