Fairfax County’s parkland holdings continue to grow. The Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) has added 0.7345 acres in the Accotink Stream Valley Park, adjacent to Bear Branch.
This addition to the park network in the Providence District will provide an opportunity for a trail connection from Accotink Stream Valley to Route 50. The Park Authority acquired the land through a developer dedication.
The Park Authority continues to acquire land throughout Fairfax County via purchases, donations and a host of other mechanisms. Currently, the Park Authority owns or cares for more than 23,000 acres, or approximately nine percent of the open space in Fairfax County. More than half of all FCPA land holdings remain in their natural state.
