ALEXANDRIA, VA – Over the last year, The Zebra Press has reported on the progress of the Colasanto Pool/Spray Park redesign. In that time, a number of designs have been created and community meetings have been held.

On Thursday,  April 28 at 7 p.m., the city is hosting a final meeting that the public can attend virtually. Attendees will be able to comment on the final design by LSG Landscape Architects. It was created with input from the Del Ray Gateway Project community survey, started in 2016, and the city’s 2012 Aquatic Facilities Study.

Beatrice Coron has been commissioned to create art for the site. At the meeting, officials will take suggestions that Coron will incorporate into her work.

Registering in advance is required. Upon registering, a confirmation email will be sent with instructions for how to login to the meeting.
