John Mastenbrook Park

John Mastenbrook Park

   

Greenway Downs is lucky to have a park that includes a tot lot and a stream bed that runs for 3 blocks. The history of our John Mastenbrook Park is rather long and very tortured. All of the following correspondence regarding the park  is in the archives in the Virginia Room at the Fairfax County main library.

From the Past

 

Correspondence with Fairfax County Park Authority 1971-1988

 1980 Master Plan Greenway Downs Park map Correspondence with FCPA & Others 1978-80

 Letter re: ownership of Mastenbrook Park path 1991

 1927  platt for section one of Greenway Downs showing Custis Parkway Park

Recent Correspondence

The more recent correspondence is a result of the Greenway Downs Civic Association concerns over the lack of maintenance by the Fairfax County Park Authority in the John Mastenbrook Park. 

 

Letter to Providence Supervisor Linda Smythe re: deterioration of stream bed portion of the Park

     (We are happy to report that Linda Smythe's office was able to intervene on our behalf and we now have permission from the Fairfax County Park authority to clear out the invasive species.)
