Veteran, Active-Duty Military Families Enjoy Free Admission Nov. 11

Honoring Veterans DayIn celebration of Veterans Day, the Fairfax County Park Authority is extending its gratitude to our U.S. Armed Forces personnel. On Saturday, Nov. 11, veterans, active-duty military and their families can enjoy complimentary access to various activities, including Rec Center admission, carousel rides at Clemyjontri Park, camping at Lake Fairfax Park and wagon rides at Frying Pan Farm Park.

Rec Center admission includes entry to pools, fitness rooms, gyms/courts, and drop-in fitness classes at all county Rec Centers.

The Honoring America’s Veterans program is made possible through generous contributions to the Fairfax County Park Foundation from individual donors. It is also supported by donations to the Fairfax County Park Foundation that honor the life of Lt. Col. Gary F. Smith, a civilian employee of the Army who, at the time of his death, was attending a meeting at the Pentagon when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed on Sept. 11, 2001.

For more information, please contact participating locations directly. 

The Fairfax County Park Foundation, a 501(c)(3), supports the Fairfax County Park Authority by raising private funds, obtaining grants, and creating partnerships that supplement tax dollars to meet our community’s needs for park land, facilities, and services. Visit the Park Foundation website or call 703-324-8582.
