Fairfax County Park Authority Fall Class Registration Opens Aug. 2

Fall SceneFairfax County Park Authority registration for fall classes and programs opens Aug. 2, 2022.

Fall classes will be in full swing with programs at Rec Centers, nature centers, historic sites, lakefront parks, golf courses and schools. Virtual classes are available for those who prefer or cannot attend in person. Classes are available for infants through senior adults, with thousands of programs available.

From learn-to-swim to learn-to-fish, from astronomy to Zumba, the Park Authority has something for everyone. Choose from skill development in sports; explore new interests, such as cooking or dance; or choose from more than 100 outdoor recreation and nature offerings at our lakefront parks.

Day Tours are back, too. Check out fall tours: Ellis & Liberty Island in New Jersey; Longwood Gardens Holiday Lights in Pennsylvania; Chanticleer Gardens in Pennsylvania; Grand Illumination in Colonial Williamsburg; Potomac Eagle North Pole Express; and St Michael's Cruise in St. Michael's, Maryland.

Like the outdoors? There’s Bug Fest at Lewinsville, cider-making at Colvin Run Mill, and Life in the Underworld at Burke Lake Park.
