A wider W&OD trail is up for funding, but again faces opposition

A proposal to widen the Washington and Old Dominion Trail in Arlington has reached the next phase to potentially get funding. As with the last time it came up for public review, it’s also facing some pushback from people, under the banner of concern over trees and the environment.

Love this post from Honeybee Weddings and Events, LLC about the tradition behind the #wedding #arch!

Fun fact about our #rustic #arbor pictured here: it was donated to us by the father of the bride who built it for her Summer 2019 wedding. We also have a white, rounded arch that makes for a stunning ceremony backdrop as well!

Being wed under an #arch is a tradition with beautiful meaning for many cultures. In a #wedding the Arch itself symbolizes the the future home where the #bride and #groom will start their family in. Depending on the culture, it can represent initiation and protection. Also, walking through an archway means getting rid of the old and moving into a new phase of life. For #nondenominationalweddings, especially #outdoorweddings the arch works as a focal point.

Today is #floralfriday and we are featuring @eshortaldesigns. A florist with 13 plus years of experience that shows a thoughtful floral design experience for her clients. We recently worked together on a project (see pictures above). She not only delivered an incredible job, but was so great to work with!

As per Governor Ralph Northam’s Stay at Home Order, issued today and effective immediately, do not drive to our parks. If you live close enough to walk or ride a bike you may access the trails, but there is no parking. Also please note, Governor Ralph Northam stated all Virginia residents only make essential trips which including seeking medical attention, work, care for family or household members, obtain goods and services like groceries, and prescriptions.

If you are seeking recreation and physical activity look for a park that is within walking or biking distance of your home. Please note: no picnicking, sports, boating or fishing are allowed at this time at NOVA Parks. You may walk on the trails only if you can get to them by foot or on bicycle.
