The Park Authority’s most popular amenity is trails. Residents love to use local trails for hikes, or running, family outings or a walk with the dog. However, despite their popularity, sometimes we need to close or restrict access to a trail for construction or maintenance activities.
The Fairfax County Park Authority will begin construction to improve the surface of the Gerry Connolly Cross County Trail between King Arthur Road and Woodburn Road during November 2018. The trail will be re-paved between King Arthur Road and Woodburn Road. Funding for design and construction of this $412,700 project is provided through voter-approved Park Bonds.
The Fairfax County Park Authority will begin maintenance work on a trail in Sugarland Run Stream Valley Park in Herndon, Virginia in September.
The Fairfax County Park Authority understands that residents love their trails. In fact, recent community surveys found that our robust system of trails through stream valleys, parks and woodlands are among our most popular amenities. However, sometimes construction may close or restrict access to a particular trail section.
