Kingstowne Park Master Plan Revision Approved
Kingstowne Park is a 75-acre site located on Old Telegraph Road in the Lee Supervisory District. The park is jointly owned and operated by the Park Authority and the Board of Supervisors. The existing park contains trails, natural areas and extensive storm water ponds and wetlands.
On April 25, 2012, the Fairfax County Park Authority Board voted to approve the master plan revision for the Kingstowne Park. The master plan will serve to guide the future uses at the site. Initiated in the spring of 2011, the development of the Kingstowne Park Master Plan was established with coordination from the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES), Park Authority Board members and Supervisor Jeff McKay. During the project period, a vision for the future of Kingstowne Park was developed by a multi-disciplinary master plan team with considerable input from the community, envisioning a neighborhood preserve with an enhanced trail network, passive recreation opportunities, stormwater management, wildlife habitat, and opportunities for stewardship education.
DPWES is currently in the design phase for repairing the existing failed dam and upgrading two of the ponds to serve as storm water management facilities for the county. Questions regarding this project should be directed to: Paul Shirey, Manager, Stormwater Management Branch, DPWES 703-877-2800.
