Opportunities for Action

There are many ways in which you can support the development of equestrian activities in Fairfax County. Listening sessions are held by the Fairfax County Park Authority in which we have an opportunity to explain the value of horseback riding. Representatives of the equestrian community can serve on a variety of boards and projects in order to ensure that the issues related to trails, open space, and other aspects of riding are considered in county plans. We regularly send out e-mails to announce such events. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please click here to contact us so we can keep you up to date on all our activities.

Fairfax County Park Authority Board

The Fairfax County Park Authority Board is appointed by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.  The twelve appointees are comprised of one representative from each of the nine magisterial districts, plus three at-large members.  The board sets policy and establishes priorities for the park agency.  Public meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at 7:30 p.m. in Suite 927 at 12055 Government Center Pkwy., Fairfax.

A list of the current members of the Park Authority board can be found here.
