Independence Day: Parking enforcement suspended, some museums and pools will still be open

Independence Day is coming up this Monday, so here’s a look at what’s open and what’s closed that day.

On the bright side for those looking to visit Old Town or see some historic sites, a few local museums will still be open.

“On Monday, July 4, Gadsby’s Tavern Museum (134 N. Royal Street); Freedom House Museum (1315 Duke Street); and the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Museum (105-107 S. Fairfax Street) will be open from 1 to 5 p.m.” the city said in a release. “All other City of Alexandria museums will be closed.”

The city’s outdoor pools will also be open. The Memorial Pool (901 Wythe Street) will be open from 10 a.m.-2:45 p.m., while the Old Town Pool (1609 Cameron Street) and Warwick Pool (3301 Landover Street) will be open from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. The Potomac Yard Park Interactive Fountain (2501 Potomac Avenue) will be open from 10 a.m.-9 p.m.

The Alexandria Police Department will suspend some parking enforcement.

“On Monday, July 4, the Alexandria Police Department will suspend enforcement of parking restrictions for metered spaces, residential permit parking districts and other areas with signed parking time limits,” the release said. “This suspension of enforcement, which applies only to the restrictions at legal parking spaces, does not permit parking in any location where it is normally prohibited (for example, ‘no parking’ zones, loading zones or spaces for persons with disabilities). Temporary ‘no parking’ signs will be enforced on July 4.”

Trash, yard waste and recycling will not be collected on Monday, with collection delayed by one day next week.

The city’s bus service, DASH, will operate on a Sunday schedule. The King Street Trolley will be operating every 15 minutes from 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
