Parks, Recreation, Open Space, and Access (PROSA) Strategy

The Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) is developing the Parks, Recreation, Open Space, and Access (PROSA) Strategy. Building on the 2017 Parks & Recreation System Master Plan, Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2019 – 2023, and One Fairfax, the PROSA Strategy will provide a framework for equitable access to FCPA parks and the park system. The PROSA Strategy is anticipated to be completed in 2023. The Strategy will provide a roadmap for improved park access and a balance of recreational experiences to meet the diverse needs of Fairfax County. Additionally, the PROSA Strategy will examine the following: 

  • Identify 10-minute walk access gaps to FCPA parks 
  • Evaluate complete park experiences 
  • Analyze habitat connectivity between environmental corridors 
  • Analyze and prioritize recreation needs and projects with an equity lens

Most county residents live near park land, but far fewer have walkable access to a park. Walkable access, as shown in the figure above, is a key indicator of how well and equitably the Park Authority serves the community.
