The Fairfax County Park Authority welcomes leashed dogs in its parks. The agency also operates dog parks or dog runs, designated fence-enclosed areas where unleashed dogs can have free play. At present, the Park Authority has eleven established dog parks.

Volunteer Dog Park Monitors are Park Authority volunteers who assist staff with the operations and maintenance of each dog park. Users of off-leash dog areas do so at their own risk. Neither Fairfax County nor the Fairfax County Park Authority shall be liable for any injury or damage caused by any dog in the off-leash area.

Operating Hours are 7 a.m. to one half-hour after sunset Monday through Friday. On weekends and federal holidays, the hours are 8 a.m. to one half-hour after sunset.
Remember, all dogs four months of age or older must be licensed.
