Chessie’s Trail: Lee District Park

Fairfax County, VA

Bowman provided planning, engineering, surveying, landscape architecture, and environmental consulting services within the 120-acre Lee District Park as part of the Family Recreation Area Spray Park and Accessible Tree House and Chessie Trail development. The accessible trails and tree house project had significant topographic and tree preservation challenges as the improvements were constructed within a forested area in excess of 50 percent grade slope and the trail was required to meet ADA standards throughout its length. The improvements were constructed by integrating the existing mature trees within trail, the platform and walkways of the tree house.
