Discussions for Upgrades to Falls Church Park Underway

Lincoln Park has been closed since a teen crashed a car into the apparatus at the playground.

A facelift for Lincoln Park is in the works after a teen plowed into the play area in July.

Susan Finarelli, spokeswoman for the City of Falls Church, said the Recreation and Parks Department is in the early stages of designing a new playground for the park. The new design will suit toddlers and children between ages 5 and 9. 

Finarelli said the new design will also be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. There is no timeline for completion of the project.

Since the July accident, the park has been closed.

A teen slammed a car into the park after he lost control of the vehicle on July 31 causing an undetermined amount of damage.

City of Falls Church police charged the teen with improper control and released to his family.

You mean to tell me that this park equipment wasn't insured? That the teen insurance did not cover the repairs? Why not? The teen's insurance company and his parents are directly responsible for the repairs. I say, the City needs to sue the insurance company and this teen's parents to get this park repaired.
