Jay Fisette to Lead Walkabout in Yorktown

There are plenty of reasons to go on a walk on Sept. 26.

It’s the first Sunday of the fall. It’s the first Sunday after World Car-Free Day. And it’s a great way to discover a neighborhood’s hidden parks and historic landmarks.

To that end, County Board Chairman Jay Fisette will be leading a “Walkabout” around the Yorktown neighborhood from 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. on the 26th. The walk will depart from Greenbrier Park (5201 28th Street North) and will take walkers past schools, shopping centers and other local sights. (See a route map here.)

The Walkabout is organized by the county-run WalkArlington organization.

    Take walk about HB Woodlawn and see how sad it looks. The children are all so bright and the school alway ranks between 1 and 10 in the national magazines. It looks like it did when I went there in the 50s. The children do not seem to mind because they love the school and the staff, but oh my, it really needs a breath of fresh air and updating.

      Ah, that would make sense and be ultimately useful… something Fissette and the board are not capable of.

    Am I getting this in focus? Our elected officials are beguiling an autumn afternoon by showing people how to take a walk?
