Three Community Meetings on Hook Road Park Project Scheduled by Reston Association

Member input on what, if anything, should be done to upgrade Hook Road Recreation Area is being sought by Reston Association through a trio of community meetings and an online master-planning survey.

The meetings, which will all be held at The Lake House (11450 Baron Cameron Ave.), are scheduled for:

  • Wednesday, Oct. 4 (7-8:30 p.m.)
  • Monday, Oct. 16 (7-8:30 p.m.)
  • Thursday, Nov. 2 (7-8:30 p.m.)

The online survey will be available for comment through Friday, Oct. 20. According to information provided by Reston Association, the purpose of the survey is “to better evaluate the recreation area and its value to the community, and to identify potential areas for improvement.”

Hook Road Recreation Area was selected by RA’s Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee as the pilot project for “full-facility enhancement” after multiple facilities were evaluated in 2016. The idea is to take a facility that has pieces of replacement work in the plans in the capital reserve study and, instead, consider comprehensive work to upgrade the facility all at once.

At a community information session on the project last month, design consultant Dewberry was introduced to members, and its representatives shared information about the studies that have been done so far and how community input will be used as the project continues to be studied and eventually decided upon.

A Hook Road Working Group will be tasked with making a proposal to the RA Board on the project’s scope early next year. Applications for the group are currently being accepted, and interviews will take place in October.

Questions about this project or the community meetings should be directed to [email protected].

    Instead of three meetings why not 1? When is RA getting their social media up to par with 21st century standards?

      Don’t give RA ideas to waste more money…

        I agree with both of you but the web site is a disaster and should be changed.
