Reston Community Center and Fairfax County are planning to build a new community center in Baron Cameron Park. This would not only eliminate several of the athletic fields, but would also remove the dog park. The Baron Cameron dog park is the only one in the area and is frequented by hundreds of dogs every week. It is also the only one in the county that is fully wheelchair accessible. Please sign if you want to keep the dog park at Baron Cameron. This petition will be presented at one of the upcoming community planning meetings.
