    Sadly, they were just closing the park for the evening, but hopefully getting the picture still counts.

    And this one doesn't count, since I was in the car (the bike was in the car, though). But it's still an amazing find out in the middle of nowhere!

    Thanks - I'm aware. I want my entire commute to be kept private, however. No random stranger needs to find out through Strava where I am at 6:30am.

    So the question remains - is there a way to get credit for parkfinder without using the hashtag feature? Thanks.

    Jennie Dean Park
    "Jane Serepta Dean (15 April 1848 – May 3, 1913) (nicknamed "Jennie" or "Miss Jennie") was born into slavery in northern Virginia, freed as a result of the American Civil War, and became an important founder of churches and Sunday Schools for African Americans in northern Virginia. Dean founded the Manassas Industrial School for Colored Youth, which for more than four decades was the only institution of secondary education available to African American youth in Northern Virginia, and one of only two in the state without overt religious affiliation."

    Fort Reynolds Park in Fairlington, one of the many “forts” erected by the Union in Arlington and Alexandria, which the Union occupied, to protect DC. It’s also a wormhole: the path leads to Abingdon Elementary School.
