About the Project
This is a Waycroft / Woodlawn Civic Association Neighborhood Conservation project that was funded in February 2014. Neighborhood kids helped design the new playgrounds for tots and school age kids at Woodlawn Park and the community was involved in planning to create an environmentally sustainable park. Old play areas were moved away from the creek and the area along the creek was reforested with a variety of native trees, shrubs and perennials. Invasive plants were removed and new site furnishings installed, making it quite a “Woodlawn.” The invasive plant removal is a five-year plan that began in May 2014. A U.S. Department of Forestry grant funded a portion of the reforestation. The final park design was developed based on County-wide feedback through Open Arlington with final approval the civic association. The contract for construction was awarded and approved by the County Board in June 2016, and was completed in March 2017.
