Ribbon Cutting June 10, 2019


Celebrate the newest park in The Little City! Join City officials, local businesses, and your friends and neighbors at a Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening party on Monday, June 10 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Enjoy free refreshments and live music by Dusty Rose and Friends.

Help Name the Park


Help the City name the new downtown park, currently known as the Downtown Plaza! The park was created by the Economic Development Authority, and it will soon be home to small events like musicians, yoga lessons, and children’s entertainers. (Check out the citywide events calendar here.) It also offers an open space to gather after dining and shopping downtown.

The park can be named after a person (past or present); geographical location; historical or cultural significance; natural or geological features; or intended park usage. The Naming Committee will consider all suggestions and make a recommendation to the City Council, which will make the final decision. The park naming portion of the City Code can be found on the City's website.

Please submit ideas by Friday, June 21! Submit your entry here.

About the Downtown Park


The Downtown Plaza was created by the Economic Development Authority (EDA). The EDA's goals included:
  • Activate Downtown Falls Church
  • Engage and connect with the community
  • Provide flexible design for various activities
  • Support local businesses
The revamped park includes many new features:
  • ADA accessible walkways
  • Added seating with benches, chairs, caps for the brick walls
  • Artificial turf to provide open space
The park will continue to evolve as the City considers murals, stage enhancements, full electrical power, and more.
