Fairfax County Park Authority Leadership

If ever there were a time that residents demonstrated their appreciation for parks, it was 2020. Because of pandemic-related facility closures and social distancing, more people than ever turned to parks for outdoor recreation and a respite from the stresses associated with the public health emergency. In turn, voters demonstrated how much they value parks when they overwhelmingly approved a $112 million park bond during the November general election, and we are grateful for that support. Of this amount, the Fairfax County Park Authority will receive $100 million to upgrade, improve and renovate existing playgrounds, expand and renovate RECenters, acquire additional land to enhance parks and protect natural resources, provide new facilities and expand the Resident Curator Program. The $12 million bond balance will support Northern Virginia’s regional parks. Our first priority is to reinvest in aging Park Authority facilities so that they can continue to support community needs for generations to come. This bond sets the stage for vital community partnerships via the popular Mastenbrook matching grant program, which pays for smaller park projects. We are also committed to investing in land, protecting our natural and cultural resources, and moving forward with phased projects throughout our award-winning park system. I am grateful to live in a community that values its parks. The 2020 park bond was the 14th consecutive park bond approved by Fairfax County voters dating back to the first $4 million in 1959. In the midst of adversity and pandemic-related hardship, voters chose this year to invest in the future by ensuring our park system can maintain its high standards of excellence and enhance the quality of life for all residents, just as it has for the past 70 years. Thank you!

FAMILY FISHING

a Lifelong Adventure

It’s a crisp, December morning at Burke Lake Park as Mike Salomon makes his way to what he considers hallowed ground. As he gazes at the water, the memories come flooding back of the countless days he and his father, Max Salomon, set out on frequent fishing adventures spanning three decades. “My dad always said a bad day fishing is still better than a good day at the office,” Mike recalled with a grin. “He taught my brother, my sister and me how to fish. Some days, we’d catch 20 or 30 fish an hour!” The son of Holocaust survivors, Max Salomon developed a love of fishing as a boy after he and his parents emigrated to the United States from Israel. At first, they lived in a family member’s attic, and young Max amused himself by fishing nearby. From his humble roots came a lifelong passion for the outdoors that the once active, government contractor enjoyed sharing with colleagues, friends and family. “My brother and I were Boy Scouts and my dad was a den leader,” Mike said enthusiastically. “We spent a lot of time at the campgrounds, and we learned to camp, fish and hike here at Burke Lake Park.” Their last fishing trip together on foot was in July 2020, nine months after Max was diagnosed with ALS, a progressive nervous system disease that causes loss of muscle control. By September, Max relied on a motorized wheelchair to get around, and hope of ever returning to his beloved Burke Lake “fishin’ hole” was fading fast. “We weren’t able to get him there in the summer because of the heat,” Mike recalled. Then the heat broke in September, and Mike and his mother, Davida, decided it was time to lift Max’s spirits by taking him on a long-awaited adventure to Burke Lake Park. “My family was amazed with how everything around the marina was so easily accessible for someone in a large power wheelchair,” Mike said with appreciation. “Nowhere else we’ve ever been was that easy, and getting him out on the pier put a huge, much needed smile on his face.” Mike says Burke Lake Park was the only place his father insisted on controlling his motorized wheelchair himself. The real test came in late September, when Max, ever determined, successfully navigated tree roots and mud for one last visit to his favorite fishing spot near Shelter C. “You could see how much it meant to him to get back down here,” Mike recalled of the bittersweet moment. “He teared up and stared at the water for 20 minutes. He didn’t think he would be back after our last fishing trip here in July.” Max lost his battle with ALS just a few days later, but Mike still feels his presence when he casts a line with his father’s fly rod, or drops a line with one of the fishing poles Max made for each of his three children after his diagnosis. They’re poignant reminders of the good times the family enjoyed here right up until the end, thanks to the accessible pier at Burke Lake Park. “He was happy here,” Mike recalled fondly of their last outing. “He did a lot of smiling.” Sign up for a boating, fishing or camping program and create your own family memories!

Energize your Mind with a Woodland Stroll

Tired of being cooped up? How about a hike along Fairfax County’s picturesque trails? The escape into nature is a perfect way to clear your mind, and there’s lots to see this time of year from the birds to the blooms. “There’s a wide variety of wildflowers in bloom in our parks, and the ones around here are remarkable,” said Riverbend Park naturalist Julie Gurnee. “In early April, you’re sure to see a sea of Virginia bluebells in a variety of colors carpeting the Potomac Heritage Trail.”

Spring Beauties

Bluebells aren’t the only wildflowers at Riverbend. In early spring, Gurnee says harbinger of spring and spring beauties are among the first to emerge. Some other spring wildflowers include cutleaf toothwort, which is steeped in Native American culture and was used for food and medicine. A perennial favorite is Dutchman’s breeches, which gets its name from the shape of the white flower, which looks like a pair of pants or breeches. Some of Riverbend’s trees and shrubs will start flowering as well, including the spicebush with its distinctive, tiny yellow blossoms. “Riverbend’s banks are a great habitat for wildflowers, which come up before the trees start to get their leaves.” Gurnee said. And if you look skyward, there’s a good chance you’ll catch a glimpse of our national bird. “Eagles are nesting about a quarter of a mile upriver from the visitor center,” she said enthusiastically. “You can see the nest from the shore, and depending on when you visit, you might be able to see the parents feeding the baby eaglets.” You’re bound to encounter other birds setting up their summer homes along the trail, too, and you might even spot turtles, snakes and other woodland creatures. They’re all hopeful signs that summer is right around the corner and the best of times are yet to come.

Dutchman's 6 Breeches

The Park Authority offers a wide variety of naturalist-led walks along park trails. To find a program near you, turn to the Nature section. Spring 2021

eSports & More Camp

Preschool Programs Offer Enrichment Develop your child’s love of learning by enrolling in our popular preschool programs at Lee District and Spring Hill RECenters. These licensed programs for ages 3 to 5 include fun theme-based educational activities that enhance social skills and foster independence. During the pandemic, children and staff are required to follow health safety protocols including temperature checks, social distancing, frequent hand washing and mask wearing. Limited space is available now through June, and registration for our expanding fall program begins March 8. For more information, call Spring Hill or Lee District RECenter.

Here’s a camp that has the power to end that classic parent-child conflict over video games versus physical activity – eSports & More Camp. This program gives campers the best of both worlds by combining virtual gaming with traditional sports for the ultimate experience in strategy and gamesmanship. “It seamlessly blends traditional sports fans into the electronic sports culture,” said Ellen Werthmann, the Park Authority’s camp program manager. “Esports is short for electronic sports, which are competitive electronic games of strategy played individually or as a team. Our eSports Camp introduces campers to this new sports trend that develops strategy and critical thinking while providing a physical fitness component to improve both physical skills and mental acuity.” In eSports & More camp, participants spend half the day developing on-court skills and playing games like basketball, soccer, handball and capture-the-flag, with an emphasis on teamwork and sportsmanship. The other half of the day is spent in the eSports lab to work on gaming technique and strategy. The Park Authority piloted eSports camp in 2019, and both participants and parents gave it rave reviews. “My son was so excited to go to this camp as he was interested in playing basketball and esports basketball,” wrote one parent in a post-camp survey. The response from parents about what campers liked most was consistent – the combination of physical sports with video games and a daily swim break. Campers also enjoyed opportunities to put their skills in both arenas to the test with Championship Fridays. This summer the Park Authority is expanding eSports Camp to seven locations. To find a location near you, turn to the Camps section of Parktakes.

Spring 2021

The Park Authority offers thousands of site-based and virtual camp programs in a variety of interest areas including athletics, STEM, performing arts and fine arts giving campers a chance to improve skills or develop a new interest. Details are in the Camps section. All site-based camps will be conducted with current COVID-19 health safety recommendations. 77

Rx Parks: The Cure for Cabin Fever

Tired of being cooped up? Start planning your spring and summer fun strategy in parks, and let the good times roll! If you’re into fun and games, you'll love playing mini golf at any of the Park Authority’s four courses, including the newly updated Jefferson Falls Mini Golf Course in Falls Church. Amusements such as carousel, train and wagon rides at various other parks are also good cures for cabin fever and provide thrills for the whole family. Our waterfront parks offer more adventures! Set sail in a pedal boat at Lake Accotink or Lake Fairfax parks, or rent a canoe or kayak at Burke Lake or Riverbend parks, and enjoy spectacular nature scenes at the water’s edge. You can also cast a line and reel in the catch of the day. How about a round of golf or learning how to play the game at the Park Authority’s seven golf courses? Enjoy some friendly on-course competition, practicing your skills at the range or socializing with friends in the clubhouse grill. If you like history, you’ll love stepping back in time to explore Fairfax County life as it was hundreds of years ago at Colvin Run Mill and Sully Historic Site. You can also experience Fairfax County’s farming heritage at Frying Pan Farm Park featuring a 1930s-era working farm. While you’re there, be sure to visit the animals! Of course you can always beat the heat by making a splash at all nine, indoor RECenter pools, and nature centers offer year-round fun for the whole family.

VOLUNTEER PROFILE

Stephen Smith Overlook Foundation, Inc. Homeowners Association

It’s easy to see why residents of Alexandria’s Overlook community are so attached to their surroundings. The homeowners’ association of more than 400 residences straddles Bren Mar Park and nearby Turkeycock Run Stream Valley Park, providing easy access for nature lovers like Stephen Smith. “My family and others in Overlook enjoy walking along the trails in the park,” he said. “I’ve lived here for 20 years and started volunteering in 2015.”

The goal then was to rid their beloved parks of invasive plant species like English ivy, Chinese wisteria and Japanese honeysuckle. Dozens of residents volunteered to help after learning about the harmful effects of invasive plants from a neighborhood husband-andwife team of naturalists. “The flowers may look pretty, but they overwhelm and kill the trees,” Smith learned. At first, the Overlook volunteers worked diligently with the Park Authority to remove the persistent, non-native plants and replace them with native species to shore up the parks’ health. After only a few outings, they realized they needed a lot more help.

“We quickly realized it was insurmountable,” Smith recalled. “The vines were growing faster than we could work to solve the problem, and volunteers alone couldn’t handle the acreage.”

Determined to improve the park’s health, the Overlook Foundation Homeowners Association decided to take advantage of a matching grant opportunity through the Fairfax County Park Foundation. To date, the association has donated more than $43,000 to hire a contractor that specializes in invasive plant control, and the Park Authority’s Mastenbrook matching grant doubled the impact of the gift.

“We still have miles to go, and the community is pretty set at budgeting to keep working at it,” Smith said. “Hopefully we’ll keep at it until we’ve won, which will require at least four more years of effort.”

By eradicating harmful, invasive plants, the group’s goal is to ensure mature trees can survive, reestablish native undergrowth and saplings and preserve a healthy neighborhood oasis for generations to come.

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.

Aquatics 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 RECenters and online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks.

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.

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 RECenter.

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.

Spring 2021

RECenters 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. 4AVA

SPRING BREAK CAMPS

Did You Know?

• Some camps are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services. These camps require additional paperwork such as an immunization record and proof of child’s identity. Download the camp forms: www. fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps to determine if your child’s camp is licensed. • Not a county resident? No worries, non-Fairfax County residents are welcome in our camps. There is a $15 out-of-county fee. • Some camps are designed for students whose school session ends before Fairfax County Public Schools. • Camp length and times vary to provide scheduling options for customers. Be sure to check number of days and hours for each camp. • Worried about weather? On rainy days or when substantial rain is expected, some outdoor camps may be canceled for the day. On code red days, campers engage in outdoor activities during the day while taking in plenty of water and several shaded breaks. Many of our camps are held outdoors. Please check with the site for more information. • What do you need for camp? As a rule of thumb, most half-day camps will ask campers to bring a snack and drink. Full-day campers will need a snack, drink and lunch. If your child’s camp includes swim time, also bring a swimsuit and towel. ALL campers should wear weather-appropriate, comfortable play clothes and apply sunscreen before leaving home. • To expedite the check-in process, make copies of your child’s forms for each camp/each week. Forms are not transferred from one camp to another and can be downloaded: www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps • Does your child need medication during the camp day? Be sure to complete the Medication Authorization Form at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps • Is swimming part of your child’s camp? If so, there may be substitute activities when RECenter pools close in late August for maintenance and cleaning. Contact the RECenter directly for details. • Many RECenters and parks use premium classrooms and gyms in nearby schools during the summer as a respite from the heat. Campers may be transported via school bus or may walk to/from our facilities to a nearby school during the camp day. • Several camps require signed waivers for participation. To request a review of the waivers prior to registering, email us at camps@fairfaxcounty.gov • Host-a-Coach Program: we are always looking for families who would like to host a British soccer coach for a week during the summer. In turn for hosting, families earn a free week of British soccer camp. For application and details, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/camps • Register early! Camps that do not meet minimum requirements for enrollment may be canceled. This decision is made two weeks in advance.

Register by Feb 19 for spring break camps and workshops and save $8!

Scouts Scout Activities and Badge Programs

At our historic sites, working farm, nature centers and RECenters, scouts can complete some or all the requirements for badges, depending on the program. For additional details on the following programs, contact the site directly. Cost may vary depending on program length, handouts and crafts. Early registration discount and out-of-county fees do not apply. Scouts are required by Scouts BSA to bring a blue card signed by their Scoutmaster to any merit badge program. Merit badges require two adults so you may be asked to stay for the program.

Request a program! Sites listed under badge

titles offer flexible scheduling options. Call the site or visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/wp-scouting. htm. All programs with advertised times require reservations and advance payment.
