Waterfront Festival: Neabsco Creek Boardwalk & Regional Park Grand Opening

June 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

>>Visit Event Page

Supervisor Frank Principi invites one and all to the Woodbridge Magisterial District for a historic day: The Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting ceremony for the Neabsco Creek Boardwalk and designation of a NEW regional park!

From there, the National Trails Day celebration will continue with guided historical hiking tours across the boardwalk and trails, Science in the Park exhibits, conservation and environmental exhibit booths and guided tours of the historic Rippon Lodge. There will also be musical performances and food for purchase via locally-owned food trucks. This is a free, family-friendly celebration.

The nearly mile-long Boardwalk is a critical link of the Potomac Heritage Nation Scenic Trail, connecting Rippon Lodge historic site and Rippon Landing Park with the Metz Wetlands. These three historic sites are now connected as the new Neabsco Regional Park, a historic destination for wildlife viewing, outdoor education and nature appreciation. The park is accessible via the Woodbridge Pedestrian & Bicycle Loop, which offers 50 miles of connected living. Bike to work, stroll to restaurants, hike through one of two National Wildlife Refuges…there is so much to explore in New Woodbridge!

For the event primary parking will be at Rippon Landing (15125 Blackburn Rd, Woodbridge, VA 22191), with secondary parking available at Porter Traditional School and the Rippon Lodge Historic Site. Shuttle buses will be offered, and golf cart transport is available between the parking lot and trailhead as an alternative to walking.

Check back for more information, activity schedule and more! You can also learn more by visiting Parks & Recreation online.
