We observed National Public Lands Day 2019 by continuing with trail work at Doves Landing. Volunteers completed work on a new trail that leads to the old growth forest section of the park. The work included cutting in a section of trail and making the trail junction at both ends much more visible.
Saturday, September 28, 2019 is National Public Lands Day, and we’ll be working to improve the trail network at Doves Landing Park, a 230-acre undeveloped park in mid-county, bordered by streams on three sides. Come out and help with finishing a new trail segment and other maintenance projects. Please click here to register. Meet at the parking lot, 9305 Doves Lane, Manassas, VA 20112.
A large group gathered on Saturday, June 1, 2019 – National Trails Day – for the long-awaited opening of the Neabsco Creek Boardwalk. The boardwalk — which is three quarters of a mile long, 10-feet-wide, and elevated with a two-story observation deck — is part of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail and the newly formed Neabsco Regional Park. The new park includes the Julie J. Metz Wetlands, the Rippon Lodge historic property and the Rippon Landing Neighborhood Park.
