From YouTube: NewsMakers: Long Bridge Park Opening
NewsMakers covers the grand opening of Long Bridge Park in Arlington VA on November 5 2011.
Long bridge is the most ambitious effort we've made as a county for a recreation area. We have, as you can see here, three synthetic turf fields that are built to Fife and NC double-a standards. I think it is safe to say these are the three best fields for soccer in the entire washington metropolitan area that exists today.
Trying to take what was a wasteland and negotiate with many different parties to get ownership of it and then the county to transform it into this magical place today. This is really the first day of official opening of these fields and rain, gardens and esplanade, and it's just gorgeous- and this can be a great asset for this community for decades to come and we're not done.
