Lake Fairfax Park Master Planning Process to Start

Fairfax LakeThe Fairfax County Park Authority has started a public planning process that will update the master plan for Lake Fairfax Park. A public meeting will outline current conditions and amenities, explain the process and discuss potential revisions to the existing plan this November. 

This 482-acre park is located in Reston, Virginia and is owned and operated by the Park Authority. Additional parcels and structures have been added to the park since the existing park master plan was approved in 2001. This public process will help determine land use recommendations focused on the features of the added property and evaluating existing facilities to see if they are still meeting current needs. The Park Authority encourages the public to lend its voice to the decision-making process.

A public information meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 7 p.m. at South Lake High School, Lecture Hall 333, 11400 South Lake Drive in Reston, VA.  At this meeting, Park Authority staff will provide background on the park and the planning process before opening the floor to an open house format to receive comments from the community. Any questions or comments can also be directed to us via email at The comment period closes on Friday, December 1, 2017 - 30 days from the public information meeting.

The park features include a 20-acre lake with fishing, the Water Mine Family Swimmin' Hole, boat rentals, carousel, athletic fields, picnic shelters and picnic areas with grills, a playground, restrooms, campgrounds, trails and a skate park.
