Monticello Park Dedication Highlights Dog Park, Other Amenities

Members of the community, local officials and plenty of pooches gathered this past Saturday to celebrate the Fairfax County Park Authority’s official opening and ribbon cutting at Monticello Park located at 5315 Guinea Road in Burke, VA. The just-completed park features a challenge course, off-leash dog park, multi-use space and trails. The $1.5 million project was funded by the 2016 Park Bond.
