Parkside From the Playground to the Workplace - Making Parks Accessible For decades, the Fairfax County Park Authority has worked very hard to identify opportunities to make our facilities and programs accessible to all residents, including those with disabilities. Since 2015, we have increased the number of adapted recreation programs we offer by nearly 20 percent. At the same time, we have expanded the offerings to include not only swimming classes, but also other forms of recreation including group exercise, sports, martial arts and outdoor amusements. Last year, when we introduced our Adapted Fun & Fit Camp, it filled in record time, demonstrating a tremendous need for more of these programs in our community. As we continue to expand our Park Authority Deputy Director Sara adapted programs, we are also Baldwin and John Gyourko, ServiceSource exploring ways to help people with Employee Relations Coordinator, shake hands after signing the new Pathways to developmental disabilities attain the Careers partnership agreement. skills they need to obtain gainful employment and lead independent lives. In December 2017, the Park Authority made an important commitment to that end by entering in a unique partnership with ServiceSource called Pathways to Careers. Through this partnership, we will be able to foster meaningful career development for people with disabilities through park internships and in turn provide expanded service to all park users. The Pathways to Careers partnership offers our current employees a learning opportunity, too. By promoting an inclusive workplace, we will realize the full potential of our community’s workforce and be better prepared to identify and respond to our diverse community needs in the future. The possibilities are practically limitless, and we are looking forward to participating in this meaningful joint venture for years to come.

into Spri r a o S ng with

Bats and Birds From the big city to your own backyard, you can get a front row seat for one of the greatest shows on Earth this spring just by looking up! As the mercury rises, colorful, migrant birds will flock north from their winter homes in Central and South America. Northern Virginia is one of the best areas for bird watching because of its location near the coast, the mountains and along the north/south divider, and on April 28, you can learn more about both day- and night-flyers and the important role they play in the environment at the Birds and Bats Festival at Lake Accotink Park. “Birds are an excellent indicator of how healthy our environment is,” said Park Authority naturalist Tony Bulmer. “They are pollinators, food for many animals and good at insect control. Plus, they are just fascinating to watch.” Many birds entertain us with their seasonal rituals and their jubilant songs heralding spring’s arrival. By contrast, the stealthy bats soar at night as they serve a very important role in keeping food on your table. “Bats are the primary predators of night-flying insects, such as the hornworm moth,” Bulmer said. “Hornworm moth larvae cause severe damage to corn and other crops that are commonly seen on our dinner table, and one study shows that bats save corn farmers $1 billion annually in insect control.” More fun facts and family-friendly activities await you at the Birds and Bats Festival at Lake Accotink Park. Enjoy bird and nature exhibits, take a naturalist-led bird hike or boat ride and discover how to create a bird habitat in your own backyard. It could be your ticket to a colorful show of winged wonders for years to come. To learn more about the Birds and Bats Festival, turn to the Events section, and to explore bird programs throughout Fairfax County, turn to the Nature section.

Bluebells Usher in Spring

Celebrate the first signs of spring by attending the Bluebells at the Bend festival Saturday, April 14 at Riverbend Park in Great Falls! These breathtaking beauties usher in springtime by carpeting the park’s floodplain with their magnificent blooms, and the bluebells are so abundant in some areas, you can’t see an end! The event features wagon rides, wildflower walks, musical entertainment and more! It’s a perfect way to expend some energy outdoors and to celebrate spring’s arrival. See for yourself the glorious display that draws generations of wildflower watchers to Riverbend Park every year. For festival details, see the Events section of Parktakes. You can also see bluebells and learn about other harbingers of spring during wildflower walks and cherry blossom activities in several Fairfax County Parks. For more information, see the Nature, Gardening and History sections.

Inspire Yourself with a Spring Hike Need a cure for cabin fever? Take a hike! Hiking is a form of exercise that anyone can take up at any age, and Fairfax County is well-known for its picturesque and diverse trail system. Spring is the perfect time to explore our area’s hundreds of miles of woodland trails and enjoy the beauty of emerging wildflowers and migrating birds. Mapping your route and calculating the distance is easy with the Park Authority’s online mapping tool, Trail Buddy. Connect with Trail Buddy at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/trails, map your route and embark on a journey to clear your mind, get some exercise and enjoy our beautiful parks! One new trail to try this year is Chessie’s Trail at Lee District Park. This unique, fully accessible path was designed with children in mind. Along the trail, you’ll find familyfriendly interactive features including a face sculpture, a tree stump bench, a sound garden, spinning rocks and more. Cross the metal grate bridge and discover a broken path and sidewalk with animal tracks. By the time you reach the stone abacus at the end of the nearly ½-mile trail, you will have encountered all kinds of wildlife figures. The trail starts near the treehouse seating area in Chessie’s BIG Backyard at Lee District Park. Explore the trails with a naturalist and learn about everything from the trees to the creatures that call the park home.

Paddleboard Yoga adds

New Dimension to Fitness Add a modern twist to your usual yoga routine with paddleboard yoga. The new class at South Run RECenter combines traditional yoga poses with an unstable surface in the pool for a challenging balancing act that makes fitness fun. “I think this is good,” said Rabbi Abu of Springfield after a paddleboard yoga demonstration class at the RECenter. “It challenges your skills more than land yoga.” Student Scott Thompson of West Springfield also tried the class while his three sons were engaged in other RECenter activities. “It was definitely interesting,” he said. “Between normal yoga and this, the balance factor with this [paddleboard yoga] is definitely a challenge.” In paddleboard yoga, students dressed in clean athletic wear perform exercises on top of a floating training platform called a FITMAT, which is anchored to the pool’s lane dividers. Four anchors per mat provide more stability for beginners, and two anchors provide greater challenge for advanced students. “The feel of standing on the FITMAT is the same as standing on a Bosu ball,” said instructor Kat Davis. “To do the exercises on the mat in the water, you really have to use a lot of lesser or stabilizing core muscles to keep you upright.” While similar classes are held in open water outdoors, Davis says students often feel more comfortable in a controlled, pool environment. “Some people are afraid to go into the open water, and the pool setting takes the fear out of it,” she said. There’s another benefit to holding this class in the RECenter pool. Because it’s indoors, students can challenge themselves with this unique, 30-minute, floating yoga and fitness class year-round.

Kat Davis leads the Paddleboard Yoga class with encouragement and energy.

Adapted Camp Opens Doors Step into Adapted Fun & Fit Camp at Spring Hill RECenter, and you gain a greater appreciation for opportunities that many take for granted. Here, campers with developmental disabilities joyfully play and learn together in a program that promotes fitness, wellness and social skills. “There aren’t that many camp options out there for teenagers and young adults with disabilities,” said adapted program specialist Nicole Woodward. With childlike exuberance, participants in this week-long, half-day camp had fun playing games, swimming, creating nutritious snacks and meeting new friends when it was offered last summer, for the first time. The popular camp also introduced students to activities many had never tried before, such as yoga, aqua Zumba and diving. “I like swimming in the deep end,” exclaimed 19-year-old Nate of McLean. “It was awesome!” “I like cardio, because it’s fun,” 14-year-old Jessie said with the enthusiasm of a cheerleader. “I love my friends, and Kelly. She’s my new friend.” “It’s the little moments that make this so rewarding, like seeing the expressions on the kids’ faces as they were jumping off the diving board for the first time,” said recreational therapy student Kaitlynne Temple. “You could tell the campers were really enjoying themselves and having fun. That makes all the planning and coordinating worth it.” Parents also noted other positive influences of this unique camp ranging from independent living skills to nutrition education. “One mom told me that every time her kid came home, he’d share the recipe of the heathy snack we made for that day,” Temple recalled. “She said he’s never been excited about healthy food before.” Perhaps the greatest measure of a camp’s success is the “Don’t cry feedback from its particibecause it’s over, pants. “One camper was smile because crying on the last day because she was sad it it happened!” was over,” Woodward said fondly. Now she can smile because Adapted Fun & Fit Camp is - Dr. Seuss back again for the 2018 season. Fairfax County Park Authority offers a wide variety of camps for kids of all abilities, interests and age groups. To learn more, turn to the Camps section. 8

Volunteer Spotlight

Amanda Eggers, Sheanell Scott and Ashley Speier,

It’s 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning, and Backlick Park in Annandale is abuzz with activity. Among Shenandoah University the volunteers are three pharmacy school students from Shenandoah University’s Fairfax campus. They are part Amanda Eggers, of the prescription to rid this park of Sheanell Scott and overgrown, invasive plants and trash and Ashley Speier prepare for work at restore its vitality. Backlick Park. “We go to school just two exits away,” said the class service chair, Ashley Speier. “We were looking for a good opportunity to help the community, and we thought this would be a nice thing to do.” While the Park Authority’s Area 2 crew used heavy machinery to clear masses of invasive overgrowth, the graduate students teamed up with other volunteers from the Falls Church and Annandale Lions clubs to manually cut roots from the land. “The work is transformative,” said area crew manager Mark Plourde. By this time next year, the barren ground will be covered with grass and provide plenty of open space for play and picnics. Student Amanda Eggers finds the work gratifying. “It just feels nice to do something to help out,” she said, and her classmate, Sheanell Scott agreed. “It’s important to get involved, and we feel it’s our duty to get involved in the community to help make it better.” As the students focused their energy on the open space, other volunteers were at work on the park’s playground. Armed with hand tools, they spread mulch evenly around the park’s playground equipment to help give children a safe place to play. “It’s a challenge for our six area crews to maintain the county’s “Never doubt that a small 427 parks alone,” said Park Operagroup of thoughtful, tions director Todd Brown. “Our committed citizens can partnership with volunteers gives change the world; indeed, it’s everyone involved a sense of comthe only thing that ever has.” munity pride and ownership in our parks.” That’s exactly why the Margaret Mead, Anthropologist pharmacy students from Shenandoah University signed up to help. “We just wanted to show that a few hours on a Saturday morning can make a difference,” Speier said.

Adapted Recreation

Adapted Recreation ADA/Inclusion Support

In keeping with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Fairfax County is committed to giving all citizens 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) 3248563. The Park Authority makes every attempt to provide accommodations; however, fulfillment of requests received with less than 10 days’ notice cannot be guaranteed.

Facility Accessibility

The Fairfax County Park Authority offers parks and facilities that are accessible to all of Fairfax County residents. For information on accessible features or issues associated with usage, call (703) 324-8563 or visit 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 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.

Adapted Aquatics The Park Authority’s award-winning Adapted Aquatics program offers individualized swimming and water activity instruction for individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities. The program’s structured setting is ideal for individuals who aren’t ready to learn basic swim skills in a general recreation environment. Classes are conducted by certified instructors and trained volunteers to support a low student-to-instructor ratio. For more information, call (703) 324-8565.

Aquatics

Aquatics The Fairfax County Park Authority’s 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 RECenters 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 RECenter. 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 a number of 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.

Combining course levels

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

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.

Small-Group Swim Lessons RECenters now offer small-group lessons. This new lesson option complements the Park Authrority’s other swim instruction offerings: • Private Lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer one-on-one instruction soley baset 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 will 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.

Pet Place

Pet Place Our dog obedience classes help build a strong relationship between pet and handler by developing understanding and communication. Flexible training methods are employed for home management, problem solving and correction. Please note: • Dogs that display fear or aggression are not permitted in Park Authority classes. • Bring a shot record with proof of DHLA rabies and parvovirus shots to the first class. • All dogs must be legally licensed, vaccinated, wearing a visible dog license and leashed when entering or leaving the class area. • Check with instructor at first class for proper leashes, collars and other equipment. • An adult must stay with child handler if student is younger than 16 or does not have own transportation. • All classes are held outdoors. • Register the handler, not the dog; one handler/ one dog per registration. Some classes may have supply fees so check class descriptions for details. Any supply fees are payable to instructor at first class and are non-refundable.

Dog Training One-on-One

Lake Accotink Park offers individualized dog training lessons taught by an instructor with more than 20 years of experience actively training dogs, training other people how to train dogs and competing in dog sports. Sessions are customized to your dog’s level of behavioral development and tailored to your schedule. Includes a pre-session phone consultation with the instructor to determine your goals and to set a date and time for your first session. An excellent option for busy people who need more flexibility than weekly lessons can provide.

Off-Leash Dogs Welcome in Special Dog Parks

Owners of well-mannered canines can take their pets to fenced, off-leash dog parks for free play, a good run or a friendly romp with other dogs. FCPA has nine established dog parks: • Baron Cameron, 11300 Baron Cameron Ave., Reston • Blake Lane, 10033 Blake Lane, Oakton • Chandon, 900 Palmer Drive, Herndon • Grist Mill, 4710 Mt. Vernon Memorial Hwy., Alexandria • Lenclair, 6725 Lenclair St., Alexandria • Mason District, 6621 Columbia Pike, Annandale.  • Rock Hill District Park, 15150 Old Lee Road, Centreville. • South Run, 7550 Reservation Drive, Springfield  • Westgrove, 6801 Fort Hunt Road, Alexandria Most of the Park Authority dog parks are public/ private partnerships, developed in cooperation with sponsoring organizations of pet owners. Volunteers assist with monitoring and cleaning up the facilities, making users aware of dog park rules and regulations and reporting maintenance needs to the Park Authority.

Socialization and discipline are among the lessons in Dog Obedience classes.
