Parktakes Production Staff

Public safety has always been at the heart of what we do in the Fairfax County Park Authority aquatics section as we thoroughly train lifeguards and teach people to swim to help ensure everyone’s safety around water. As often as we thoroughly review our procedures at Rec Centers and our outdoor water parks, the COVID-19 pandemic made us think even more critically about public safety and the way we do business. For example, in the two years since the Water Mine last opened, we addressed everything from major repairs to general operating procedures, and every decision was made with public safety in mind. We removed and replaced the concrete perimeter around the water park pool which was badly cracked due to weather-related freezing and thawing over time. The new, smooth concrete surface reduces the likelihood of tripping accidents and better contains water in the pool area. We also implemented an advance ticketing system intially to help avoid crowding at the gate and to satisfy COVID-19 social distancing requirements. Since the change also made check-in more efficient, we will likely continue that practice long after the pandemic is over. Staff safety became a concern when we realized that as many as eight Water Mine staff members worked in tight quarters indoors during the summer season. After the two-year, pandemic-related hiatus, we shifted to an outdoor check-in system with laptops, and that practice may continue, as well. When it was determined that we could safely operate the Water Mine this summer, we hired and trained nearly 200 lifeguards and staff with COVID-19 safety protocols. Although social distancing and mask requirements were lifted by Memorial Day weekend, we proceeded with caution by limiting capacity at first to further assure safety. From our outdoor water parks to our indoor Rec Center pools, the pandemic strengthened our resolve to think critically, to adapt to changing conditions and to consider new ways of doing business. Long after the public health emergency is over, we will continue to apply lessons learned in the name of public safety. Marc Barton Aquatic Section Safety Manager Fairfax County Park Authority

Brings the 1800s to Life Miller’s House Exhibit

Immerse yourself in 19th century history with a new, interactive Miller’s House exhibit at Colvin Run Mill. The fully restored ground floor is the culmination of nearly five years of historical detective work and now gives you a rare and historically significant glimpse of how the middle class lived in the 1800s.

“At that time, about five percent of the population was gentry, 80 percent was in farming, and the 15 percent in between included millers, skilled artisans and shop owners,” said former park manager Mike Henry during the early restoration process in 2018. “There are plenty of examples of gentry and farming homes from that timeframe, and only a few like this that represent those who would become middle class.” The Miller’s House exhibit gives you a hands-on opportunity to explore nearly 100 years of history and social norms through the eyes of two families who lived here, the Carpers and the Millards. Although few records exist about how they lived, historians were able to find clues about specific types of furnishings that each family used.

“We know from census records that Philip Carper owned the property and two mahogany tables and chests,” said former restoration project manager and historian Kathryn Blackwell. “In oral histories, the Millards, who were Methodists, talk of having a piano and singing songs of praise and worship for 20 minutes every night.” The Miller’s House features a hall with a staircase flanked by two identical rooms now filled with historically accurate Federal and Victorian period furnishings. One room is trimmed in brown and likely served as the family room. The other room is trimmed with expensive Prussian blue paint and was probably used for entertaining, offering another clue about the home’s curious past and each middle-class family’s social evolution. “From the 1810s to the 1890s we see evidence of the burgeoning middle class with a mix of mahogany furniture and expensive paint that they enjoy showing off to visitors,” Blackwell said. “Lace curtains in the 1890s were used in the summer to let in light, while heavier drapes were used and kept drawn in the winter to keep in heat, and slipcovers also changed with the seasons.” Once nearly condemned, the Miller’s House at Colvin Run Mill now serves as an important link to the past with historical secrets yet to be discovered. Be among the first to explore the new, hands-on exhibit by signing for a family program. Details are in the History section.

Fall 2021


A Fresh Start for the Big Wheel It’s back to the grindstone for Colvin Run Mill! Much to the delight of longtime mill enthusiasts, the 210-year-old historic structure began operating again in May after a year-long closure to replace its deteriorating water wheel and flume. “I’m thrilled to death that it is up and running again,” said Dan Dyke, president of the Friends of Colvin Run Mill volunteer organization which helps support the mill. “It’s a wonderful example of early 19th century technology that many more people will get to see and enjoy.” The fully operational mill offers a rare glimpse of the milling process from start to finish, just as it was done when it opened in 1811. Firsttime visitors are especially fascinated by the mill’s might. “You can see people’s eyes light up when they see the dramatic spill of water from the flume and feel the vibration of the wheel when it is first turned on,” said interim park manager Sarah Oberther. “They smile from ear to ear and realize that this place is really special.” The mill produces flour, corn meal and grits, which are sold in the nearby historic general store, just up the path from the miller’s house. Grinding demonstrations are held on the first and third Sunday of every month and park tours are available on weekends and by appointment. Book your visit, and see for yourself why yesterday’s innovation is today’s fascination. For tour times and ticket information visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/colvin-run-mill/tours or call the park at 703-759-2771.

All Aboard for Ice Cream and Pizza! Treat yourself to old-fashioned family fun at the Burke Lake Park Ice Cream Parlor. The newly renovated shop features an enchanting, miniature train that loops around a suspended, indoor track, adding to the fun while you enjoy any number of items from the shop’s expanded menu in a depot-themed setting.

“I got an ice cream,” exclaimed 2-1/2-year-old Beatrice Learned as she gleefully toddled from her outdoor picnic table to peer into the ice cream shop window for a glimpse of the train. Her mother, Vanessa Beary of Reston said the visit to the ice cream parlor was the perfect ending to their first trip to Burke Lake Park. “This is amazing,” she said of the kid-friendly activities near the ice cream parlor. “We rode the big train three or four times and the carousel twice, and the train inside the ice cream parlor is just the sweetest thing! It’s a great way to keep a toddler entertained.” Families with older children say they are impressed with the changes, too. Menu options now include pizza, hot dogs, sundaes, milkshakes, coffee, soda, juice boxes and more. It’s the perfect rest stop during a fun-filled day of amusements. The Burke Lake Park Ice Cream Parlor is open weekdays from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and weekends from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. through Labor Day.

Ride and Shine with Parks It’s said that necessity is the mother of invention, and after the COVID-19 shutdown grounded her flight plans, Kari Cannistraro needed to get out of the house. With the help of her knowledgeable, bike-riding friend, Cheryl Anders, the travel-loving video producer took up bicycle riding. As she charted new territory in Fairfax County Parks, her wanderlust melancholy melted away. “I was amazed,” Cannistraro recalled of her discoveries along the trails. “I’ve lived in the area practically my whole life and did not realize what was right behind my house. Stunning scenery, history, horse farms, wildlife – it’s like you’re venturing into another world!” As she explored the trails and encountered other riders, she noticed few were women. So, she decided to repurpose her production skills to create a YouTube video blog with Anders called “Ride and Shine Bicycling.” By documenting their adventures, Cannistraro hoped to encourage more women to explore the fascinating wonders along Fairfax County trails. “I have never seen so many eagles at one time,” Anders recalled enthusiastically of a trail ride in the Pohick area. “It was such a thrill! They were beautiful!” “We found another area in Burke Lake Park where eagles are nesting, and we check them out once in a while to see how they’re doing,” Cannistraro said. “It’s such a peaceful wonderful trail.” In their videos, the two women also rate each trail’s degree of difficulty so that prospective riders know what to expect. A standard bike works well on a paved trail, but a mountain bike or hybrid are needed for more rugged terrain. Regardless of the challenge, both women say each ride through Fairfax County parks has its rewards. “The Rocky Run Stream Valley Trail brings you into Ellanor C. Lawrence Park, and when you enter the park grounds, it’s gorgeous,” Cannistraro said enthusiastically. “There’s a big pond with lily pads, flowers and butterflies and turtles, and Cabell’s Mill is one of my favorites.” “I’m learning a lot from historical markers,” Anders said. “Seeing the area makes it more fun and more interesting to learn about history, and it’s exciting to spot birds and animals you don’t normally see every day.” Both women say each amazing ride through parks is like taking a mini vacation into the wilderness. Best of all, the adventures are just minutes from home.

Good Times Return to the Water Mine! Stake your claim to glorious fun in the sun at the Water Mine Family Swimmin’ Hole at Lake Fairfax Park! After a two-year, pandemic-related hiatus, the beloved Old Westthemed water park is open again, and this year’s seasonal rush to the park’s Rattlesnake River and interactive features would have made Prospector Pete proud.

park staff supervise the fun in shifts, and park managers are keeping close tabs on capacity to further ensure a safe environment. New this year is the ability to reserve and pay for Water Mine tickets online, making check-in a breeze.

“It’s a fun day with the family,” said Carmen Mendoza of Washington, D.C. who enjoyed the Water Mine with her family on opening day. “There are a lot of safety measures in place, and it feels very safe.”

The Old West theme with its covered wagons and water-filled ore carts has been entertaining families for generations. Mountain slides are named for Pete the Prospector who, according to legend, staked his claim there in 1849 searching for gold but struck only water. Thanks to the Park Authority, Pete’s worthless find is now a golden opportunity for you for you and your family to go prospecting for a ton of fun and a lifetime of happy memories.

Eric Nielsen, The Water Mine Manager

From the traditional water slides, shower geysers and spray pads to the park’s three-story body flume slides, there are thrills to suit every member of the family. Nearly 200 well-trained lifeguards and water

“It’s a lot more helpful not having to wait in line,” said Milton Reynosa of Reston with appreciation of the new advance ticketing option. “It’s a kid-friendly environment, and we came here for the kids.”

The Water Mine is open daily through Labor Day. For hours and to buy tickets, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/watermine.

VOLUNTEER PROFILE

Tony Barnett Starbucks Vienna

An avid angler and kayaker, Tony Barnett is no stranger to parks. He has fished in waters all over the region, which is why he was surprised to find a fishin’ hole in Fairfax County he has never been to before. He discovered it through a friend’s Facebook post.

“A friend of mine posted a picture of an eagle flying at Lake Accotink, and the picture was incredible,” Barnett said with astonishment. “I looked up the park address and realized it was about 20 minutes from work.”

When he checked out the park in person, he discovered a hidden, outdoor recreation oasis nestled in surrounding neighborhoods. When he looked further, he also discovered a familiar and unwelcome sight on the park grounds, and resolved to do something about it. “Plenty of times when I go fishing, I find a lot of trash on the ground, like bottles, paper and fishing line that other anglers left behind,” he said. “National and state parks have plenty of volunteers to pick up trash, and regional and local parks really need the help.”

Barnett wasted no time recruiting partners from his Vienna store and from other nearby Starbucks to pick up trash at Lake Accotink. In April, just a few weeks after discovering the park, Barnett and his team of volunteers joined forces for their first Lake Accotink Park clean-up event.

“We normally get together several times during the year for teambuilding activities, but we haven’t been able to do it over the past year because of the pandemic,” he said. “It was wonderful to see 20 or so partners and family members help with the park cleanup and then get together afterward for a cookout. It was the first time we’ve been together in a year.”

Barnett says this won’t be the last time the group supports Fairfax County parks. Starbucks prides itself on giving back to the community, and park clean-ups are a tangible way to improve the quality of life for all Fairfax county residents.

Adapted Recreation Programs

(6-12 yrs.) Prerequisite: Swimming 1 or equivalent skill proficiency. Students increase confidence and ability to perform swimming skills with and without assistance or flotation devices. Skills include blowing bubbles with face submerged under water, floating on front and back and gliding or swimming at least two body lengths using arms and legs. Parent participation may be required. 4AC 4AD 4AE

ADA/Inclusion Support

In keeping with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Fairfax County is committed to giving all residents equal access to recreation and leisure opportunities. Park Authority activities, programs, camps and classes are inclusive, and reasonable accommodations are available for people with disabilities. ADA accommodations include sign interpreters, assistive listening devices, program modifications and inclusion support. To request accommodations, or for more information about adapted program opportunities, call 703-324-8563. The Park Authority makes every attempt to provide accommodations; however, fulfillment of requests received with less than 10 days’ notice cannot be guaranteed.

Location Day Time

Follow guidelines when registering

If it has been a month or longer since the student has participated in a swimming lesson, we suggest repeating the previous course completed. If you have any questions about which class is right for you or your child, please contact the Adapted Aquatics Coordinator at 703-324-8565. For safety reasons and to ensure customers get the maximum aquatic program benefits, the Park Authority reserves the right to remove students from an inappropriate class and either issue a refund or place them, when possible, in a class that better matches their ability.

Practice and Repetition are keys to success

Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills. Students often repeat a level several times before developing the endurance and skill proficiency necessary for advancement. Repeating a level does not constitute failure; it is to be expected. Mastering skills takes time, practice, and patience.

Swim Classes for Children

Aquatics

Baby & Me Swim

(6-18 mos.) Register your baby for this class designed for babies and their parent(s), or other favorite adult who want to learn water adjustment and aquatic skills together in a fun environment. Learn how to enter and exit the water in a safe manner, feel comfortable in the water and explore submerging to the mouth, nose and eyes. Explore buoyancy on front and back, change body position and learn safety information. Up to two adults may participate with each child. Babies must wear tight-fitting swim diaper and plastic pants under bathing suit.

Fairfax County Park Authority aquatic facilities offer something for everyone. From infants to senior citizens to people with special needs, we serve all levels of swimming ability and aquatic interests.

Monthly calendars listing pool hours are available at the Park Authority’s nine Rec Centers and online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks.

Follow guidelines when registering

If it has been a month or longer since the student has participated in a swimming lesson, we suggest repeating the previous course completed. If you have any questions about which class is right for you or your child, please contact the aquatic staff at your favorite Rec Center. For safety reasons and to ensure customers get the maximum aquatic program benefits, the Park Authority reserves the right to remove students from an inappropriate class and either issue a refund or place them, when possible, in a class that better matches their ability level.

Practice and Repetition are keys to success

Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills, depending on several factors including class attendance, coordination, water familiarity and outside practice. Students often repeat a level several times before developing the endurance and skill proficiency necessary for advancement. Repeating a level does not constitute failure; it is to be expected. Mastering skills takes time, practice and patience.

Small-Group Lessons

Combining course levels

When enrollment is low, course levels may be combined to avoid class cancelations.

U.S. Swimming, Synchronized Swimming or Dive Meets

Please see High School Swim & Dive Teams section for information regarding high school swim and dive schedules. For the most up-to-date pool closure information, please check the online aquatics calendar at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks, or contact your nearest Rec Center.

Practice Healthy Swimming Habits

Accidents in the pool involving vomit or fecal matter require the pool to be closed to clean and sanitize the water. Under Health Department standards recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), accidents involving fecal matter now require longer pool closure. Prevention is far better than clean up, so please follow the CDC guidelines: • Children (and adults) who have had diarrhea in the last two weeks should not go swimming. • Be sure to use the bathroom before getting into the pool and take frequent bathroom breaks. For public health reasons, standard diapers cannot be worn in the pool. Children who are not yet toilet trained must wear snug fitting plastic pants and/or a swim diaper under their bathing suit. Waist and legs on plastic pants or swim diapers must be snug enough to contain matter that could contaminate the pool. Please check diapers often, and change them in the locker room not on the pool deck. • Adults who have continence issues should refrain from using the pool. • Shower before entering the pool and after using the toilet. • Avoid swallowing pool water or even getting it in your mouth.

Rec Centers now offer small-group lessons. This new lesson option complements the Park Authority’s other swim instruction offerings: • Private Lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer one-on-one instruction solely based on the student’s skill level. • Semi-private lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer instruction between two participants of similar ability and one instructor. • Small-group lessons offer the same curriculum as the larger, traditional group lessons but to a smaller group of swimmers. Small-group lessons lower student-to-teacher ratios, offer more personalized instruction and more practice time than large-group lessons. Traditional group lessons offer a comprehensive curriculum for participants ranging in age from 6 mos. to adult.

One-on-One Swim Lessons

(3-Adult) Children must leave parent willingly, be comfortable in the water and be able to follow simple directions. Private swim lessons are a great way to improve swimming skills and water safety techniques of any level. With one-on-one swim lessons, an instructor can spend more time helping overcome obstacles which may require more time or dedication than a standard swim lesson. Senior discount does not apply to these lessons. See website for details and times.

DONOR PROFILE Melissa Teresinski, Northrop Grumman Fairfax County parks represent a lifetime of memories for Melissa Teresinski. The Northrop Grumman environmental sustainability manager developed a love of the natural world playing in local parks as a child, and she still enjoys hiking and kayaking adventures with her family. “I also volunteer at watershed cleanups with my daughters to enhance their learning experience,” she said. Teresinski understands the health of the Chesapeake Bay watershed is directly linked to the quality of life in Fairfax County and beyond. That’s one reason she is committed to teaching others about conservation both as a mom and as a corporate environmental advocate. “Northrop Grumman has a strong commitment to water stewardship and conservation,” Teresinski said. “Supporting local community efforts to protect and restore water resources is an important aspect of the Northrop Grumman water stewardship approach.” Since 2001, Northrop Grumman has provided funding to support environmental education in Fairfax County parks. Much of the funding supported Meaningful Watershed Environmental Education (MWEE) programs at Hidden Oaks Nature Center. Last year, when COVID-19 shuttered schools and parks, the aerospace and defense company enabled Hidden Oaks to virtually provide stewardship education field trips to Fairfax County elementary and middle school students. “Thanks to Northrop Grumman’s generous grant, more than a dozen videos were produced on topics ranging from learning how sound vibrations travel to how tadpoles grow to evaluating stream health through macroinvertebrates,” said Suzanne Holland, Hidden Oaks visitor services manager. “Parents and teachers joined children in praising the range of topics and activities.”

STEAM

To Save Our Planet!

The Sully Woodlands Stewardship Education Center is a groundbreaking international model of sustainability and environmental stewardship and — thanks to our generous sponsors — we will break ground on the Center this fall! We have plenty more to do, however, to ensure this incredible addition to the FCPA community is up and running sustainably in 2022. Located in Ellanor C. Lawrence Park, the SW-SEC will provide a place for people to gather and explore their connection to natural and cultural resources. As one of a few Living Building Challenge structures in Virginia – and about 30 in the world – the SW-SEC will be wholly sustainable, built with recycled materials, use renewable energy and be pollution-free. This fully accessible Center will educate people about the tenets of environmental responsibility and teach practical applications that help heal our planet. The STEAM learning area adjacent to the building will feature accessible outdoor activities that promote the restoration and management of our natural resources.

Fairfax County Park Foundation

It will instill and inspire a sense of environmental respect
