Lake Fairfax Park serves as a countywide park and provides a diverse mix of recreational facilities and natural areas across its 481.64 acre expanse to serve the county’s residents. The purpose of this master plan revision is to determine how best to incorporate newly acquired acreage and determined needs into the overall plan for Lake Fairfax Park. Located in the Hunter Mill Supervisory District at 1400 Lake Fairfax Drive in Reston, Virginia, the park includes:

A 20-Acre Lake with Fishing and Boat Rentals
The Water Mine Family Swimmin' Hole
Athletic Fields
Pavilions and Picnic Areas with Grills
A Carousel
Tent and RV Campgrounds


The Fairfax County Park Authority held a Public Information Meeting on November 1, 2017 to begin the process for updating the Lake Fairfax Park Master Plan and to collect the public’s input for future changes to the park. The meeting was well attended and during the ensuing comment period, input from the community was gathered. These comments and community input were used to help guide the draft master plan. The draft Lake Fairfax Master Plan Revision considers parcels added to the park since the previous master plan, includes changes to park facilities, and provides a framework for guiding the future of the park.
