Volunteers Help Restore Flood-damaged Trails at Riverbend Park

Volunteers Help Restore Flood-damaged Trails at Riverbend Park

Twenty-one volunteers offered their time and energy to the Fairfax County Park Authority on Thursday, January 3, 2019, to provide much-needed help restoring trails at Riverbend Park.

The park’s trails took a beating in late 2018 from heavy rains that caused flooding and forced some closures. Riverbend scheduled a two-hour Trail Work Day on January 3, and volunteers worked with park staff to help clear away debris, move dirt and restore hard-hit trails. The popular Potomac Heritage Trail is still muddy, but the upriver section is now open.

Pictured are some of the volunteers who provided trail work at Riverbend Park.
