Park Planning

Fairfax County is home to more than one million residents and more than 23,000 acres of parkland. In 1950, the Fairfax County Park Authority was established with the mission of developing and maintaining the viability of this expansive system of parkland and facilities. Through the provision of quality facilities and services as well as the protection of the county’s cultural and natural resources, the Park Authority seeks to improve the quality of life for the county’s residents today and well into the future. To achieve its long-range objectives, the Park Authority has established a consistent and equitable process for the planning of park property and facilities. A key part of this process includes the development of park master plans, specific to each park and intended to establish a long-range vision towards future park uses and site development.
