The public is invited to join the Alexandria City Council for the dedication of the Judy Lowe Neighborhood Park, located at 1 & 7 E. Del Ray Avenue in Alexandria, on Saturday, October 17, at 8:30 a.m. The dedication will be held rain or shine.
Judith “Judy” Utterback Lowe loved Alexandria and the Del Ray neighborhood. She believed intensely in preserving and enhancing a sense of community and was well known as the “First Lady of Del Ray,” because of her involvement in many civic activities. While alive, Judy appreciated the fact that it was a grassroots effort of neighborhood activists who convinced the City to buy the land at 1 & 7 E. Del Ray Ave. for the creation of a neighborhood pocket park.
