County Seeking Public Opinion On Marcey Road Park Renovations

Planned renovations at Marcey Road Park are up for public discussion next week.

Arlington County is scheduled to host a community meeting about the project on Thursday, October 3 from 6-7:30 at the Potomac Overlook Regional Park auditorium.

The three-acre park at 272 N. Marcey Road, near the entrance to the Potomac Overlook trails, is home to two tennis courts, a tennis practice wall, and a basketball court.

The renovation will replace the park’s existing amenities, according to the project website.

“County staff has been canvassing the community and park users to determine what people are using in the park,what they like, and what they’d like changed,” said parks department spokesman Susan Kalish.

Following next week’s meeting, the project staff will hold another community meeting later in the fall to present draft designs.

Construction is set to begin by spring 2020 and completed by the end of that year.
