Marina and Carousel
Come visit the marina or ride the beautifully restored antique carousel at Lake Fairfax Park! Enjoy our 18-acre lake, wildlife and beautiful scenery while operating a pedal boat or taking a leisurely ride on the tour boat. Our trained staff pilot the tour boat and will assist you when launching and returning from your pedal boat ride. Pedal boat rentals include U.S. Coast Guard approved PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices.) Whether skilled or novice on the water, you will enjoy the features offered at Lake Fairfax Park marina.
Want to stay on dry ground? Bring a pole and try your hand at fishing from the shoreline or dock. A Virginia State Fresh Water Fishing License is required for anyone fishing who is 16 years or older. Fishing from personal boats or rental boats is not permitted. Read more about Fishing in the Parks.
