Park Authority Publishes Franconia Park Master Plan Revision


The Park Authority invites the public to review and comment on a draft Franconia Park master plan revision.  The plan revision was presented at a Public Comment Meeting on April 1, 2014.  Public comment will be accepted for 30 days after the meeting until May 1, 2014Download DRAFT Master Plan Revision

The Park Plan

Located along the Capital Beltway, Franconia Park has over 62 acres of playing fields, garden plots, parking, trails, and forest.  Franconia Park is located in the Lee Supervisory District, and is classified as a district park.  Franconia’s current master plan approved in 1974 has guided its uses and development for the last 40 years.  As with many park master plans of that era, the plan consists of a graphic conceptual plan representing the approved planned uses.  This 1974 Master Plan, existing uses, use patterns, and public input will inform the master plan revision.

The Fairfax County Park Authority initiated the public master planning process to revise the 1974 Park Master Plan for Franconia Park,  with a public information meeting held on July 16, 2013, at Key Middle School.  The presentation and a summary from this meeting are available online. This meeting allowed the public to identify issues and uses to be considered by the Park Authority in developing the draft Master Plan.  

Using this input, the site conditions, along with the existing master plan, a draft master plan was prepared by the staff team.  The draft master plan is published for public review on this project website, and will be presented to the community at a public comment meeting to be held on April 1, 2014.  Public comments can be presented at this meeting or during the 30 day public comment period following the meeting date.

The Park Authority will post public meetings presentations, summaries and other relevant materials to this website.

Future Park Improvements

Although park planning should be completed in 2014, no determination has been made as to when approved improvements will be implemented.  Current park bond and work programs do not include funding for design or construction within Franconia Park.  Site design, construction timing, and funding are determined by the Park Authority Board through adoption of the Capital Improvement Program.  In some cases, sponsorships and funds proffered from private developments may be available to provide park improvements.
