Officials, Neighbors Gather to Celebrate Mount Eagle Park
Mount Eagle Park is one of those great neighborhood spots that provide the perfect opportunity for recreational activities within walking distance to nearby homes. The park features a picnic pavilion, sand volleyball court, historic interpretation and a kid-friendly playground just off North Kings Highway in Alexandria, behind the Huntington Metro station and nearby residential communities. The park was proffered by the site developer Huntington Metro LLC after the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) sold it. The park was reconstructed by Home Properties, and was later transferred to the Fairfax County Park Authority by Huntington Metro LLC. As part of the park development the Park Authority also received $30,000 from Home Properties to construct the playground.
