The new features are the funded by the Joey Pizzano Memorial Fund (JPMF). JPMF is a non-profit charitable organization the Pizzanos started to honor the memory of their 6-year-old son, Joey, a child with developmental disabilities who died in an accidental drowning in 1998. JPMF’s contributions through the Fairfax County Park Foundation continue to honor Joey’s love of water by providing opportunities for other families to enjoy water play together in a safe environment.
