Riverbend Park in Great Falls debuted a new $1.3 million maintenance shop this week.

The Fairfax County Park Authority and other stakeholders celebrated the opening of the facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday (June 28).

The facility includes a maintenance yard for equipment and vehicle storage, along with a work area and the installation of a new septic field. It was funded by 2012 park bonds.

The site was formerly home to the former manager’s home, which was demolished.

The project team was able to drastically limit the number of trees that required removal at the site. At first, the team anticipated the removal of 100 trees, but only two were ultimately removed. Rain barrels and a cistern were also installed on the facility to collect rainwater.

The park is located at 8700 Potomac Hills Street.
