Department of Recreation, Parks & Cultural Activities Seeks Community Input on Programming

Posted on Updated on

The City of Alexandria Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities is conducting its annual Program Interest Survey to help determine programming priorities by location, time of day and participant’s age. Paper surveys are available at all City community centers or click the Program Interest Survey to complete it online. To ensure your voice is heard, surveys should be submitted by Sunday, September 11.

The survey takes only a few minutes to complete and will guide the development of future program offerings. City residents and nonresidents are encouraged to participate.

An example of feedback received from previous surveys is the need for adult exercise & fitness classes and adult dance classes on weekday evenings. In response to these findings, the following new programs are being offered this Fall:
