Braddock Road Interim Open Space in Alexandria – NOW Open!

Interim Park/open space in the Braddock Road Metro neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia

As we told you FIRST last week, The new half-acre open space at 600 North Henry Street (next to the Wythe Street Post Office) in the Braddock Road Metro neighborhood of Alexandria is now open to the public!

The interim open space provides community gathering areas, seating, joggle boards, a bocce ball court, horseshoe pits and a pingpong table. Equipment for these activities will be on a “bring-your-own” basis until loaner equipment can be made available for use.

The plaza along Fayette Street will be lighted and open until 10 pm. Lights have been installed, but will not be activated for several weeks. The remainder of the park is open from dawn to dusk. A Bikeshare station is located along North Henry Street and bike racks are available in the plaza along Fayette Street.

For further details, including background information and long-term goals for the space, please visit
