Summer is typically a time to take a step back from the usual fast pace of life in the DC metro area. Kids are out of school. Work demands often lessen as our attention naturally turns to being outdoors, socializing, and taking it a bit easier. Vacations, travel, and family events give us something to plan, look forward to, and enjoy. The days are long and the nights are pleasant. Summer is a great time to enjoy our city, town, county, community, and neighborhood.
One of the best things about living in this area is the myriad of events, entertainment, activities, and fun to be had here. This blog will highlight and inspire you to take advantage of one of the most sought-after commutes in Northern Virginia.
The ParkFairfax Unit Owners Association does a wonderful job creating a sense of community, informing home-owners and residents about important issues, and planning fun events. In the latest newsletter there is content that matters to those who live here. For example, you’ll find the board minutes are highlighted, reminders about bike permits and glass recycling, a statement by the newly elected Ward 11 Board Representative, and a Dash Bus update. For those with pets, there is a helpful reminder about how you should be enjoying outdoor spaces with your pets during the summer months.
Nothing beats the summer heat like a splash in one of the three pools in the ParkFairfax Community. Knowing pool locations, hours, and rules is not only helpful, but makes our community safer and more pleasant for all. In addition to all the recreation spaces here, the activities calendar keeps us connected and able to have fun right in our own neighborhood. The summer concert series is a great way to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends while listening to live music.
The Association website is also a wealth of information.
Here are some updates from the Announcements page:
