Westgrove Park Master Planning Process

On September 25, 2013, the Park Authority Board approved the Westgrove Park Master Plan.  The approved Master Plan can be reviewed from the project website on the document list to the right or from the Park Master Plan archives.

Westgrove Park is located at 6801 Fort Hunt Road in Alexandria.  The property was previously used as a sewage treatment plant until the late 1980’s when operations were ceased; any related facilities were either removed or buried onsite.  A wastewater pump station within the park continues to be operated by the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, Wastewater Management Division.  The property was leased to the Park Authority in 1986 for a future park site and was ultimately transferred to the Park Authority in 2001. 

On July 11, 2012, the Park Authority Board approved an interim off-leash dog area use within the park as requested by a sponsor group.  In November of 2012, the interim off-leash dog area was installed and opened to the public.  The approved Master Plan affirms the off-leash dog area as a permanent use and recommends other uses and facilities for the park, including:

  • Outdoor classroom resource affiliated with Belle View ES
  • Trail network
  • Open lawn areas for community use
  • Resource protection zones

The Park Authority held a public information meeting on July 30, 2012, and a public comment meeting on April 30, 2013.  Presentations and summaries from both meetings, as well as all public comment on the draft Master Plan, can be reviewed from the document list to the right.

Any additional questions or concerns about the Westgrove Park Master Plan can be submitted to the Park Authority via email to Parkmail@fairfaxcounty.gov or via written correspondence to:
