The city of Alexandria wants residents to tell it what to do with several of its largest parks.

Officials want input on how the parks are being used, and what they should do to improve conditions at each of them. The Citywide Parks include: Four Mile Run Park, Simpson Stadium Park, Chinquapin Park, Henlsey Park, Holmes Run Park, and Ben Brenman/Boothe Parks.

In the next month, several workshops are planned to help focus goals.

If you want to comment now, the city is asking for feedback on its website at AlexandriaVA.gov.
