Park Authority Board Chairman William G. Bouie says there was much to celebrate in the past year. He writes in the report, “Despite the continued challenges associated with the economic recovery, the Fairfax County Park Authority continues to meet our community’s growing recreational needs at a high, nationally recognized standard of excellence.”
