hree times in its 60-year history, the Fairfax County Park Authority has won the National Gold Medal Award from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), and your contributions to our system have helped us reach this pinnacle of public service and accomplishment. This highly coveted award honors communities throughout the United States that demonstrate excellence in long-range planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program development, professional development, and marketing and communication. It is the “Oscar” of our industry. The 2010 award is especially meaningful to us because it is a testament to the can-do spirit of our community. It is no easy task managing 22,540 acres of land encompassing Director John Dargle 417 parks, nine RECenters, eight golf courses, eight historic and Deputy Director properties, 200 playgrounds, 300 miles of trails, and 795 school and park athletic fields. Despite dwindling resources Cindy Messinger accept the Gold Medal Award brought on by the struggling economy, we have managed to on behalf of the Park sustain our mission to provide recreational opportunities, to Authority in Oct. 2010. preserve natural and cultural resources, and to enhance the quality of life for Fairfax County residents through the collective efforts of staff, volunteers, customers and elected and appointed officials. For this we are grateful, and we can never say thank you enough. These days, many of our staff members are performing additional job responsibilities to help offset a reduction in force and to ensure our mission continues with the same standard of excellence that has served Fairfax County well throughout the past six decades. The staff’s commitment to service is truly inspiring. Our volunteers and donors never cease to amaze us with their generous gifts of time, talents and resources. Volunteers give nearly 200,000 hours each year to manage golf play, clean streams, cultivate gardens, maintain trails, explore archaeological sites, conduct research, lead nature and history programs, feed farm and nature center animals, greet park and RECenter visitors, conduct park tours and so much more. Through the Fairfax County Park Foundation, financial donors enable us to fund Park Authority needs that might otherwise go unmet. Research tells us that eight out of 10 households in Fairfax County regularly use parks resulting in 18.5 million visits per year, and user fees now fund more than 60 percent of the Park Authority’s annual operations. Fairfax County voters have also consistently demonstrated their commitment to parks by supporting all of the 11 park bonds since the agency was created in 1950. This grassroots community participation and involvement makes the Park Authority a viable resource and an integral part of our lives. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and our volunteer Park Authority Board have demonstrated unwavering support throughout the years in both policy and budget decisions. Their longstanding commitment to preserving parkland in the face of rapid development has enhanced the quality of life for all residents, and we are truly grateful for their support. The Park Authority could not have attained recognition as the nation’s best without sustained community involvement. The level of support we enjoy is truly exemplary, and in large part the reason Fairfax County edged out Florida’s Miami-Dade County, New York City, and Charlotte-Mecklenberg, North Carolina, in the 2010 National Gold Medal competition. We can think of no finer way to have finished the Park Authority’s 60th anniversary year. It is a crowning achievement for which all Fairfax County residents can be proud. On behalf of the Fairfax County Park Authority, thank you!

QUICKTAKES The earliest known photograph of Colvin Run Mill, top, and the mill today, right. The site’s history tells a story of survival, drama and intrigue.

Colvin Run Mill Celebrates Bicentennial Birthday

S

troll down Colvin Run Mill’s memory lane, and you find a survival story that plays like a soap opera – As the Mill Turns. George Washington once owned the property and envisioned building a gristmill there. It met all the criteria: a stream for water power, a road for access and oak trees for building the mill. But other matters got in the way, like founding our country, fighting in the Revolutionary War and serving as the nation’s first President. By the time Washington got around to the prospect of building the mill, he found himself in a land dispute with a squatter named William Sheppard, who alleged that Washington missed a tract of land when he first surveyed the property decades earlier. “Washington was outraged at the allegation and returned to survey the property again in November 1799,” Colvin Run Mill manager and historian Mike Henry said. “He rode his horse home to Mount Vernon 6

in a cold rain, developed a throat infection and died less than a month later.” Although the land dispute had not been settled, Sheppard started building the mill in 1802, after Washington’s widow, Martha, died. But financial troubles and an ongoing dispute with Washington’s heirs over water rights prevented him from completing the structure. He was forced to sell the mill at auction. The mill finally became a reality in 1811, when Philip Carper purchased the property, completed construction and started operating the mill. He ran a successful business for 31 years. “The mill was cutting-edge technology for its time,” Henry said. “People would come from miles around to watch the thing work, much like they do today.” By the time John Powell took over the gristmill in 1842, new trades and services moved near Colvin Run Mill, including a saw Free Subscription to Parktakes, call 703-222-4664

mill, blacksmith shop and a general store. “It was the one-stop shopping of its day,” Henry said. “You could have a new wheel built for your wagon, pick up your dry goods at the store and pick up the news from local merchants.” Local economic conditions were generally good, and the community thrived until 1860, when the winds of war were stirring. Powell fell into financial difficulties, and the man who ran the mill, O. Allen Scanland, was identified as a Confederate sympathizer. “Neighbors testified that Scanland said he would ‘wade knee deep in Union blood’ before doing business with the Union,” Henry said. “During his own questioning by Union soldiers at Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C., Scanland admitted to selling grain to Confederate soldiers.” Scanland was held prisoner, Powell struggled with his finances and Colvin Run Mill sat idle for the duration of the Civil War. Spring 2011


Q U I C K TA K E S Henry says that may be the only reason it survived. It was of no value to either side. “J.E.B. Stuart passes it on the way to the Battle of Lewinsville, and John Mosby rides by it from time to time, but no one mentions it. It’s an abandoned, broken down mill, so there’s no need to burn it.” After the war, Powell filed for bankruptcy, and the mill remained idle until 1883 when it was sold to Addison Millard, who became the mill’s most successful operator of all. The family business survived for two generations, modernizing with rollers and steam turbines through the industrial revolution. At its peak, the mill produced about 35 barrels, or close to 7,000 pounds of white flour per day. Wagon drivers with two- or four-horse teams delivered flour and meal supplies to neighboring stores and hauled wagon loads of barrels or sacks to the railroad depot for shipment to faraway markets. By the late 1920s the Millard brothers acquired two motor trucks that made for more efficient hauling and deliveries. But by the mid 1930s, major companies like General Mills and Pillsbury Mills and a disastrous economy brought on by the Great Depression made it difficult for smaller companies to compete. So, the family sold the mill to a Bernard Bailey, a lawyer, who intended to remodel it into a restaurant or antiques business. However, his efforts failed, and the mill again sat idle for three decades. In 1965, the Fairfax County Park Authority acquired Colvin Run Mill and began a full-scale restoration. Today it stands as one of the finest examples of early American technological innovations. As visitors pass through the mill, they see an award-winning masterpiece of restoration craftsmanship, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The site also includes the 19th century miller’s house, the early 20th century general store that was originally located across Colvin Run Road from the mill, and a barn with adjacent blacksmith’s shop. It’s a legacy from the past that would no doubt have made George Washington proud. Mark your calendar for Sunday, April 10th to be an honored guest at Colvin Run Mill’s 200th birthday celebration! Celebration details and information about other great events at the mill are listed on page 122 in the History section.

Park Authority Camps Offer Benefits Close to Home

I

t’s a question kids are often asked: What did you do on spring or summer vacation? Children will have great stories to share after experiencing Fairfax County Park Authority spring and summer camps. How about nature camp, or chess camp, or geocaching camp? There are also camps that tap into creative energy such as drama camp, art explorers camp and dance camp. Or maybe your child prefers more traditional offerings such as sports camps or the popular summer R.O.C.S. (RECenters Offer Cool Stuff) camp. The Fairfax County Park Authority received rave reviews from parents who enrolled their children in 2010 camps. The responses to a follow-up survey were overwhelmingly positive: “My son loved this camp so much he was dressed and ready to go at 7:30 a.m.,” wrote one satisfied parent about Adventures on the Farm Camp. “My daughter loved the animals and knew all their names.” Another parent wrote,“My daughter absolutely loved Drama Camp with Walid and the other counselors! She enjoyed every activity, made friends, and came home every night full of enthusiasm and energy.” Athletic camps, such as basketball camp also received rave reviews. “The counselor really worked to include all kids in the activities, regardless of ability or gender,” wrote one parent. “Strong coverage of fundamental skills was evident.” Child development professionals say a positive day camp experience helps children mature socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically. Experts say camps help build selfesteem and character and foster an atmosphere of teambuilding, sportsmanship and community in a safe and nurturing environment. All of those camp attributes are important to parents, but kids say the best part about camp is that it’s just plain fun!

Bluebells at Riverbend

t’s a site to behold – the bluebells at Riverbend Park! These breathtaking beauties usher in springtime by carpeting the park’s floodplain with their magnificent blooms. This annual phenomenon occurs naturally, and the bluebells are so abundant in some areas, you can’t see an end! To 19th century poets, bluebells symbolized solitude. In the Victorian language of flowers, they represent constancy. See for yourself the glorious display that draws generations of wildflower watchers to Riverbend Park in the first two weeks of April.

he wait for water is over at Lake Accotink Park! After sacrificing last season to enable dam repairs, the water level in the 55-acre lake has been restored to normal, much to the delight of boaters, anglers and nature lovers. “Because of significant, weather-related construction delays, we had to forgo the 2010 boating season,” Lake Accotink Park Supervisor Julie Tahan explained. “Now that the lake is back, we’re delighted we’ll be able to resume normal operations this year.” Beginning in May, you’ll be able to rent canoes, rowboats and pedal boats at the park’s marina. Tourboat rides will also be operating this spring, offering nature lovers impressive opportunities to see waterfowl and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Fishing is allowed year-round so long as you have a valid Virginia State fishing license. “The lake offers a tranquil setting similar to that of a mountain lake in the middle of nowhere,” Tahan said. “The difference is our lake and surrounding 493-acre woodland park happen to be located in the middle of a major metropolitan area.” Frequent visitors will be glad to know that the lake’s pair of nesting eagles remained in residence throughout the construction period and continue to take flight near the

water, delighting visitors lucky enough to spot them. Lake Accotink will also, once again, offer its crowd-pleasing Cardboard Boat Regatta. In this popular event, cardboard boat creations are judged on design and seaworthiness as their captains and crews attempt to keep their waterlogged cardboard craft from submerging in the race to the finish. “This is without question our most Lake Accotink is popular event of back in business the year,” Tahan and ready for said,“and it’s part boating, fishing of the Springfield and the return Days communityof the popular wide celebration, Cardboard Boat Regatta this which takes place spring. the weekend after Memorial Day.” The fun at Lake Accotink doesn’t end with the water. Shore-based amenities include antique carousel rides and the nine-green, double-hole miniature golf course. The park is also a popular place for birthday parties, picnics, hiking and biking along the 3.75mile trail. Lake Accotink Park is located at 7500 Accotink Park Rd. in Springfield, Va. Boating and fishing are offered at several other Fairfax County Park Authority locations. To learn more, see the Boating and Fishing section on page 40.

ost people are aware of the harmful effects of air pollution. But did you know that light pollution at night is harming the environment? Light pollution is misdirected or misused light, generally resulting from an inappropriate application of exterior lighting products. As a result, light pollution wastes billions of dollars annually in energy costs and consumes hundreds of millions of barrels of oil or tons of coal. It pollutes the air we breathe through needless electricity generation, most of which comes from fossil fuels, and it harms nocturnal wildlife. Overly-bright lights prevent proper navigation for many species and expose them to predators. Light pollution also destroys the views of the night sky. It is estimated that 90 percent of all Americans live under skies that are negatively impacted by light pollution. That’s why the Fairfax County Park Authority is launching the Dark Skies campaign to educate the public on ways to reduce light pollution to preserve our natural resources. Here are some simple ways you can help: • Start with your own house. Make sure your outdoor lights are directed down to the ground where they are needed. • Use the bulb with only the amount of light needed for the task, not more. • Use time controls (such as motion sensors or dimmers), which enable you to use light only when you need it. • Encourage elected officials to conserve energy costs by ensuring street lights and those in other public areas are bright enough only for their purpose and are properly cast downward – not up to the sky. By working together, we can reduce light pollution and conserve our natural resources. For more information, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks and www.darksky.org. Join astronomers in searching the night sky at Lake Accotink Park or Turner Farm Park on March 12th. Details on these and other spring park authority activities are listed in the Events section on page 97.

Q U I C K TA K E S

RECenter Workouts: EXERCISE

E

One Man’s Cure-All

By Daphne Hutchinson

d Nenstiel is a believer in the curative power of exercise. With a new-found commitment to fitness, he is controlling diabetes, osteoporosis and sleep apnea. He has lost nearly 80 pounds, he has gained greater flexibility, and his back pain is gone. He has a new, positive attitude, and he is better able to focus. “Exercise has changed my life,” said the 62-year-old retired landscape architect. “I’ll never give it up!” Ed’s transformation began in 2007, after his wife, Kathy, passed away. She had been extremely ill with diabetes and chronic infections brought by that disease’s advance. “Her death was a wake-up call for me,” he said.“I’m diabetic, and I didn’t want to go down that same terrible road.” His weight had ballooned to 280 – a lot of pounds, even for a frame of six feet, three inches.“It was time to start taking care of myself, and now I had the time, so I made it my new job.” And he picked the fitness room at Audrey Moore RECenter as his new job site. By and large, Ed had always been a sedentary kind of guy. So he started slowly and simply, alternating 10 minute stints on the treadmill and 10 minutes on the recumbent bike, following the routine religiously, six times a week.“In a couple of weeks, I could see that I was doing better – I wasn’t out of breath all the time!” As he gained confidence, he increased the bike sprints and treadmill walks, but despite the increased calorie burn, the pounds stayed put.“I needed to focus on diet, but that was hard, very hard because I absolutely loved eating, and not just eating, but eating copious amounts of food, and even then, I was still famished all the time.” He learned that his oral medication for diabetes included extreme hunger among its side effects. He switched to insulin injections, and the urge to eat declined. He ate smaller portions, didn’t snack and made more healthful choices. Finally, the pounds started dropping. He cut exercise sessions back to five times a week and upped the duration to two and half hours, still divided between the RECenter’s bikes and treadmills. Spring 2011

Ed Nenstiel shed debilitating health problems as well as extra pounds by adding regular exercise to his day. A year-and-a-half into the exercise regimen, Ed added weight machines to his program, watching his fellow exercisers and following their example. But it didn’t take long to realize that even the most experienced hard bodies don’t always demonstrate the right techniques. So he worked with personal trainer Maureen Fletcher to fine tune this routine and master the proper way to use strength-training equipment. “Ed’s story is remarkable,” Fletcher said. “He didn’t just start an exercise program. He made a firm decision that he was going to change his life and his lifestyle, and he had the determination to see it through. He started slowly, he wasn’t discouraged by the plateaus, and he got help when he needed it to maintain his commitment. Decision, then determination – that’s what it takes,” Maureen added. In March 2010 Ed no longer needed insulin.“I’m now controlling my diabetes with exercise and by watching what I eat,” he explained. Since making that exercise commitment three years ago, he has also seen continual improvement in his annual bone density scan, and he no longer wakes up continuously through the night, so he is energized instead of dragging through the day. In September, Ed added yoga to his RECenter time. “That’s amazing, too. After just three months, my stiffness is relieved, More Classes Online, www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks

the aches have disappeared and my joints move so much better.” The health gains have strengthened Ed’s commitment; he is determined not to ever retire from this self-improvement job. “When I don’t exercise, I feel like I’m really missing something. It’s part of my life now,” he affirmed. Make exercise at a Fairfax County Park Authority RECenter a part of your life. RECenters offer pools and fitness rooms with cardio and strength training equipment plus experts who can help you design an effective workout to meet your needs.

Warren Hults, Volunteer Audrey Moore RECenter and Burke Lake Golf Course When you work in customer service for as long as Warren Hults has, you develop extraordinary people skills that transcend almost any barrier. The WWII Army Air Corps veteran and Long Island, N.Y. native crossed paths with people from all walks of life during his 31-year Braniff Airlines career; stories he loves to share with customers at Audrey Moore RECenter and Burke Lake Golf Course. He chatted with stars from Hollywood’s golden age, such as Gary Cooper, Maureen O’Hara and Marlene Dietrich. “Marlene Dietrich was really nice,” he recalled enthusiastically with his distinctive, Long Island drawl,“but her daughter was pretty demanding.” There was also the enlightening encounter with a member of the “Rat Pack.” “Sammy Davis, Jr. It surprised me how short and thin he was!” And there were memorable conversations with political figures, such as former Vice President Walter Mondale,“He was a funny, nice guy,” and Lady Bird Johnson,“One of the nicest ladies I ever met,” and Sen. Jesse Helms,“He struck me as an old-fashioned, southern gentleman, which so surprised me because he was so fiery in Congress,” Hults said. “We talked for about 40 minutes.”

Hults says he learned how to treat people and how not to treat people by observing others during his airline career – skills that have served him well through 18 years of volunteering at the RECenter and golf course. “I started coming to the RECenter after my wife had a heart attack,” he said. “Rather than just sit there and watch her work out, I decided to make myself useful by helping out in the weight room.” Today, at 83, Hults shows no signs of slowing down. When he’s not driving a school bus or sharing some laughs with Helen Hults, his wife of 57 years, there’s a good chance you’ll find him marshaling Burke Lake Golf Course, or helping others navigate weight room equipment at Audrey Moore RECenter. “I’ve enjoyed working with the people,” he said. “Almost every nationality is here, and I love to learn from other cultures.”

Volunteers and students team up for success in Park Authority adapted aquatics programs. To join this awardwinning volunteer group, contact LeeAnn David at 703-324-8565. Adapted Programs: See the listings in this Adapted Leisure Services section of Parktakes for seasonal offerings or call 703-324-8563. Class formats target students with disabilities who are preschool-age through adults and need more structure or a lower staff ratio then what standard classes offer.

The Park Authority’s award-winning Adapted Aquatics is an individualized swimming and water activity program for individuals with physical and developmental disabilities. The program targets individuals who aren’t quite ready to learn basic swim skills in an inclusive, structured setting. Classes are conducted by American Red Cross certified instructors, with assistance provided by trained volunteers who work one-on-one with students.

Please note that family members may be asked to assist in the water if volunteers are not available.

Preschoolers with Disabilities (3-5 yrs) Through play and individual attention, preschoolers work on adjustment to a new environment. Focus is on entry and exit skills, safety, breath control and arm and leg propulsion on the front and back. 8--30 minute lessons--$88

Aquatics Monthly calendars listing pool hours are available at the park authority’s nine RECenters and online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks.

Looking for information? Details about aquatics classes are just a click away at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks. Choose “Classes,” then “Aquatics,” and you’ll find: • Class descriptions, locations, dates, times and more. • Placement guide to help you select the appropriate swim class. • Lists of the skills covered in swim classes for all ages, from six months and older. • Important information for parents, including tips for helping children succeed at swim lessons. • An online evaluation form. For pool sizes and other RECenter aquatic attractions, see www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/recenter.htm.

Options for all abilities 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 the spectrum of aquatic interests.

Follow guidelines when registering 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 place them, when possible, in a class that better matches their ability level. If you have questions about which class is right for you or your child, the aquatic staff at any RECenter for can assost you.

Repetition can be the key Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills, dependening on a number of factors including class attendance, coordination, water familiarity and outside practice. In addition, a child’s stage of development may influence his or her ability to learn aquatic skills. Students often repeat a level several times before mastering the skills required for advancement. It is important to understand that repeating a level does not constitute failure. Mastering skills takes time, practice and patience.

Combining course levels When enrollment is low, course levels may be combined to avoid class cancellations. If you have any questions about your progress or your child’s, please ask the instructor.

Practice Healthy Swimming Habits For public health reasons, standard diapers cannot be worn in the pool. Children who are not yet toilet trained must wear either snug fitting plastic pants or a swim diaper.  A bathing suit must be worn over plastic pants or swim diapers. Waist and legs on plastic pants or swim diapers must be snug enough to contain matter that could contaminate the pool. Under health department standards adopted at the recommendation of 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 CDCs healthy swimming guidelines: • Children (and adults) who have had diarrhea in the last two weeks should not go swimming. • Be sure that children use the bathroom before getting into the pool; take them on frequent bathroom breaks and check diapers often. • Shower before entering the pool and after using the toilet. • Change diapers in the bathroom (not the pool area.). • Avoid swallowing pool water or even getting it in your mouth.

NEW! Water Play Wiggles In The Water & Me (2-5 yrs) Are you looking for a class full of fun and merriment? Then come play games and move to the music in the beach area of the pool. Children and their parent(s), and/or other favorite grown-up(s), will love making music, singing songs and playing games in this group class. Bathing suits are required.

American Red Cross Classes for Babies and Preschoolers Parents are responsible for ensuring their children do not create unsanitary conditions that lead to pool closure. Children who are not toilet trained MUST wear snug-fitting plastic pants underneath their bathing suits or a swim suit diaper (regular diapers are not allowed in the swimming pools). If parents are in doubt as to whether their children can “hold it,” they should err on the side of caution so that others may enjoy the pools.

Baby & Me Swim (6 mos-18 mos) For babies and their parent(s), or other favorite grown-up(s), who want to learn water adjustment and other aquatic skills together in a fun environment. Learn how to enter and exit the water in a safe manner, feel comfortable in the water, explore submerging to the mouth, nose, eyes and completely. Explore buoyancy on front and back, change body position and learn safety information. Two adults may participate with each child. Babies must wear tight-fitting swim diaper and plastic pants under bathing suit. 2AP 2AQ 2AAP 2AO

Little guys and gals can plunge into fun in the Park Authority’s popular Pee Wee Paddler classes. They’ll also get an introduction to water safety and a head start on a fit and active lifestyle.

Tara Mooney and Joseph Thelin Like many young couples, Tara Mooney and Joseph Thelin eagerly awaited the birth of their first child. Their spirits soared at the site of their baby’s first picture, an ultrasound print. Their hearts skipped a beat when they first heard their daughter’s heartbeat in the doctor’s office. And like most couples, they were overjoyed when they felt their baby kick. The pregnancy was normal in every way until March 17, 2008 - the day before Katherine Rose Thelin was born. “After we lost her, we were left with enormous grief,” Joe said. “We tried to cope with that grief.” Tara and Joe channeled their grief into doing good works for children in memory of their stillborn daughter. In their search for the perfect service project, they heard about an unmet need close to home. They learned that for decades, a playground had been in the master plan for Royal Lake Park, but a lack of funding prevented it from becoming a reality. So they launched a grassroots fundraising campaign that ultimately led to Katie’s Playground at Royal Lake Park. “Our heart was really set on the idea of creating a special place just to celebrate Katie’s memory and a playground

Everyone believed in it.” “We will never forget the ribbon cutting and ceremony,” Tara said. “It was very special. It was a full-circle moment for us.” Tara and Joe’s second child, Mia Grace Thelin, was born 17 months after Katie. Her parents say she is a “joy and a blessing,” and they find comfort in sharing her sister’s legacy with Mia and all the other children who often visit Katie’s Playground.

Golf I

Park Profile . . . Ryan Carney, Golf Pro/Instructor Twin Lakes Golf Course Twin Lakes Golf Pro Ryan Carney remembers the day he abandoned his journalism aspirations for a career on the green. He was a young, George Mason University student working in the Twin Lakes pro shop when a golf instructor asked him to help with a junior golf camp. “It ignited my passion for golf,” Carney said. “I played a few times as a kid, but I caught ‘the bug’ working at the pro shop, and I haven’t looked back since.” Today, Carney’s credentials are among the finest in Northern Virginia. He holds a Class A membership in the Professional Golfers Association (PGA), he’s a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI)-Certified Golf Fitness Instructor and he is continuing in the TPI program studying Junior Program Development. “It’s like blending a physical therapist with a golf pro and a personal trainer,” Carney said. As a result, he not only can identify a swing faults and other issues, he understands the physiology behind them and can better prescribe corrective measures. “By getting the body to move the right way, we can maximize a player’s golfing ability,” Carney said. The 11-year golf veteran teaches adult classes and private lessons at Twin Lakes Golf Course. He is also the architect of the course’s junior golf program and oversees spring and summer golf camps and classes. “Our summer programs are designed

around teaching the fundamental movements of the golf swing. These body movements can be found through a variety of fun games and activities and then applied to the swing.” Carney says it’s never too late to learn the game of golf, and the benefits last a lifetime. He says the mix of people he encounters ranges from beginners who hone their skills on warm weekends, to die-hard golfing gurus who will play in any weather. “We have a variety of well-maintained public courses to accommodate all skill levels, budget levels and ages,” Carney said. “Fairfax County residents are very fortunate.”

Park Profile . . . Brooke Lewis by Daphne Hutchinson Brooke Lewis grew up in Huntley Meadows Park. A regular visitor since she was a kid, she’s been a volunteer for half her life, starting at 15 and even managing to find time for woods and wetlands during college vacations. She earned two-year degrees in biology and psychology at Northern Virginia Community College before going on to the University of Mary Washington for an undergraduate degree in environmental science and biology. But jobs in her field were scarce, so she was a substitute teacher and lifeguard before settling seven years ago at Accotink Academy’s Therapeutic Day School, teaching inner city youngsters from Washington, D.C., ages 15 to 22, with learning and emotional disabilities. To avoid burnout and to maintain balance in her life, Brooke also joined the seasonal staff at Huntley Meadows, working weekends year-round at the park. There, she helps lead and develop programs, conducts plant surveys, sets up displays, coaches volunteers on teaching skills and serves as a weekend liaison between nature and discovery as she answers questions from visitors. “My goal is to be a naturalist in the parks, but it’s hard to pull away from the kids at the Academy,” Brooke noted. “This way, I have both.” The value of natural connections? In my second summer at Accotink Academy, we changed the program to include as much time outside as possible. We made it like a junior naturalist camp, going twice a week to a park, and we watched for the sparks of interest to come to life as we connected to why they should care about the environment and how it affects them. The goal was to guide every student to something they found fascinating or interesting in nature, and it worked! All year long, they asked what we were doing that coming summer. And when we planted and tended our butterfly garden, it was the only thing the kids didn’t crush, run over and kill. They made it, they learned from it and they were proud of that accomplishment.

The biggest challenge for Huntley Meadows? We need to get teens involved. The Friends of Huntley Meadows is an example of what can be accomplished by people who care about this park, but most of the members are 50 years and older. We’ve got to light the spark in a new generation. It will burn out if we don’t keep it going.

What excites kids? In the visitor center, it’s the things they can touch, like furs, shells and skulls.

Huntley Meadows Park is important because . . . The wetland is a nursery for wildlife. It filters pollutants, and it helps prevent flooding. Just as important, it’s a great nature-based learning tool. The park is a safe place for kids to discover ecosystems and gain understanding of habitat protection, pollution threats, succession and the inevitability of change. It teaches kids to sit and listen. They learn to contain themselves in order to see what they want to see. Huntley Meadows is a little piece of quiet in a busy world, a sanctuary, not just for animals but for people as well.

They want to know, “Were these alive?” They can ask any question they want, and never get, “Oh, we’re not going to talk about that now” as the answer. They like the instant gratification. Outside, they love the boardwalk -- the wetlands change so much. And they like being able to see the things we’ve talked about inside. Just being in the park is exciting for them. Life is messy. Kids are messy. The park is a messy mess of nature. They love it!

Pet Place Our dog obedience classes help develop understanding and communication and build a strong relationship between pet and handler. 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. Register the handler, not the dog; one handler/one dog per registration.

Off-Leash Dogs Welcome in Special Dog Parks

Offered at all Park Authority RECenters, nature centers and golf courses

The Fairfax County Park Authority has always welcomed leashed dogs in all of its parks. Now, for owners of well-mannered canines who enjoy a good run or a friendly romp, there’s the additional option of off-leash dog parks - fenced areas where unleashed dogs can have free play. At present, there are seven established dog parks: • Blake Lane, 10033 Blake Lane, Oakton  • Baron Cameron, 11300 Baron Cameron Ave., Reston • South Run, 7550 Reservation Drive, Springfield  • Mason District, 6621 Columbia Pike, Annandale.  • Chandon, 900 Palmer Drive, Herndon • Quinn Farm, 15150 Old Lee Rd., Centreville. • Grist Mill, 4710 Mt. Vernon Memorial Hwy, Alexandria   All Park Authority dog parks are public/private partnerships developed in cooperation with sponsoring organizations of pet owners. The sponsors are the agency’s liaison between users and local residents, animal control and the police department. They monitor and clean up the facilities, publicize dog park rules and regulations, and report maintenance needs to the park authority. Dog parks are open 365 days a year from sunup to sundown. Users of off-leash dog areas do so at their own risk. Neither Fairfax County nor the Fairfax County Park Authority is liable for any injury or damage caused by any dog in the off-leash area. For rules and regulations governing the off-leash dog areas, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/parkrules/ dogpark.htm and for additional information, call 703-324-8594.

The Joey Pizzano Memorial Fund (JPMF), dedicated to “improving the lives of children with special needs and their families” has committed to build an aquatic playground to be maintained and operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority at no cost to the individual. JPMF provides networking, funding and equipment for unique programs, and community awareness for individuals with disabilities. In 2001, the award-winning JPMF Splash program was established, teaching children with special needs how “to be safe and have fun in and around the water”.

Special Kids Special Families JPMF relies on contributions from individual donors, local businesses, and charitable foundations that support its mission of “improving the lives of children with special needs and their families”. Please note that donations may be tax-deductible pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and the JPMF Nonprofit Federal ID #541912956.

Our Special Harbor Sprayground, is a fully-accessible theme park inspired by Joey’s love of the Chesapeake Bay. It serves as a sensory and creative destination, encouraging all children to embark on a water adventure in a safe zero-waterdepth environment. Our Special Harbor is uniquely designed to encourage interaction and provide families and children of all abilities a place to play and have fun together.
