Silver Lake – getting close…

The Grand Opening is October 4, but volunteers from Dominion Power, Prince William Trails and Streams, and other organizations – plus Park Authority staff – have been busy this summer.

Trails have been located and cleared, some archeological sites/wetlands/special environmental sites identified, old structures removed, new kiosks and fences built, and a massive amount of debris from the old private campground removed.  The newest county park in Prince William is going to be an attractive place for passive recreation.

If you want to participate in the Master Plan process for Silver Lake, first public meeting will be October 6.

By then, the park will be open and lots of choices already implemented, such as “where should we locate the picnic area?” and “should we build a platform for viewing the lake, and if so… where?”  Still, some decisions regarding park uses and development will be made in the Master Plan, such as “should swimming be encouraged in the old quarry rather than in the lake?”

For details, check out the Prince William County’s Park Authority’s Fall 2009 Public Planning Meeting Schedule.

    Hi Charlie,

    Great comments. I am interested in what was meant by “but volunteers from Dominion Power, Prince William Trails and Streams, and other organizations – plus Park Authority staff – have been busy this summer”?
