ALEXANDRIA, VA – Previously The Zebra Press has reported on the redesign of Colasanto Pool at 2700 Mt. Vernon Ave. Alexandria’s Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities is hosting a third community meeting to obtain the input of residents. To view the pool designs, read this article from May 12.

The virtual meeting will take place Wednesday, Oct.6 at 7 p.m.

Input received at this meeting will be used by the design team led by LSG Landscape Architects to further refine the project.

LSG will build on the recommendations from The Del Ray Gateway Project community survey started in 2016 and the City’s 2012 Aquatic Facilities Study. The 2012 study recommended that the old pool be converted into a spray park.

The design phase is expected to be complete at the end of the year. Construction will begin in 2022.
