The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities is scheduling renovation of the Hooffs Run Park playground (also known as "Blue Park") located at 99 East Rosemont Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22301. The renovation will include replacement of existing play equipment, rubberized safety surfacing, new site furnishings, and plantings.

The goal of this survey is to understand how the playground is currently used, and what residents would like to see included in the new playground design. The proposed playground designs will be presented at several playground open houses to be scheduled this spring.


There are several features about blue park that I hope the city preserves or makes improvements upon.  Its great that there is a sandbox and that it is in a shady area for kids to play in.  In general, its nice that there is shade and places to sit under the shade. The gardens are also lovely and fun for kids to run around, and duck into.The park could you additional seating and perhaps a picnic table.The large stretches of space are also very nice for families who want to kick around a ball, or play other sports that need more space.
