Fairfax Park Board endorses Tysons park plan

Fairfax County recently developed a comprehensive parks plan for Tysons. As Tysons transforms from a car-dominated commercial center to a mixed use, transit-oriented area with many more residents. Those residents will want safe places to walk and bike and parks recreation and other outdoor activities. The plan includes a recreational trail loop connecting many of the current and future parks.

We recently received this message from the Fairfax County Park Authority regarding a new parks plan for the Tysons area:
Thanks for participating in the planning process for the Tysons Park System Concept Plan! We considered the many public comments on the draft Plan received during last spring's public outreach process and made some minor revisions to the Plan as a result. A final, revised document was presented to the Park Authority Board's Planning & Development Committee in September and was endorsed by the full Park Board on Wednesday, October 22nd. See related info on the Tysons Park Planning project website.

The Park Concept Plan will now be used to inform Phase 3 of the Tysons Urban Center Plan Amendment. Possible changes to the Tysons Comprehensive Plan pertaining to parks and recreation will be discussed at public meetings held by the Planning Commission's Tysons Committee beginning in January 2015.
