The Fairfax County Park Authority has a variety of picnic areas, shelters, and amphitheaters perfect for hosting birthdays, weddings, church events and picnic outings. Make your reservations by downloading and completing our picnic application. Please submit the application with your full reservation payment and mail or fax it to us at (703) 653-6672.
Reservable areas are open from dawn to dusk and fees are based on a per day, single use rate. The amphitheaters are rentable for a 4-hour block minimum.
Picnic Shelters/Areas and Amphitheater Rental Multiple Use
A discount of 10% of the total rental fee will be applied to "long term" rental groups who submit a request for and rent a picnic area, shelter, amphitheater or gazebo for a minimum of five (5) days in the calendar year.
- A "multiple use" rental will be defined as any individual or group that submits a picnic rental application requesting a minimum of five (5) rental dates.
- Groups who do not request a minimum of five rental dates on the same request will not be granted long term status, and thus will not be eligble for receiving the 10% discount.
