ALEXANDRIA IS PLANNING TO RECONSTRUCT TAYLOR RUN: COME OUT TO CHINQUAPIN PARK ON SATURDAY SEPT. 12 TO SEE WHAT COULD BE LOST
Alexandria is proposing to redesign the 1900 feet of Taylor Run between the entrance of Chinquapin Park next to the Chinquapin Aquatic Center to the southern end of First Baptist Church.
The park contains a globally rare seepage swamp, old-age canopy trees and forest stands, and perhaps the greatest concentration of Alexandria rare species in the City. The project as currently designed includes the removal of more than 250 native trees (many large and old age) and is likely to markedly adversely affect the wetlands and flora.
We suggest parking in the lot next to the tennis courts and walking down to the park entrance on the King Street side of the Aquatic Center. The path in the forest is very flat. On the way out you will need to walk up several steps, but they are broad and gradual. The exit will put you up on Chinquapin Circle near the parking lot. Boots or sturdy shoes, long pants, and long-sleeved shirts recommended. Masks are required.
Thank you for your interest in Seminary Hill Association. Please don't hesitate to contact Seminary Hill Association if you have any questions or concerns.
