About Nova Parks


NOVA Parks Facilities Guide

What is NOVAParks? Formally known as the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, the agency represents three counties and three cities -- Arlington County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, the City of Alexandria, the City of Falls Church and the City of Fairfax. Regional Park Authority staff, volunteer board members appointed from each jurisdiction and many friends of the regional parks working together have preserved more than 10,000 acres of the rolling and wooded Virginia countryside for you and created a priceless legacy for future generations.

Above all, NOVAParks was designed to make it so that you, your family and friends can always have a place to go and enjoy the outdoors amidst the constant development of this region. And we’re a lot more than just picturesque woodlands and open fields. Golf Courses, trails, history, event venues, boating, fishing, waterparks, cycling routes, gardens, camping, nature and so much more await!
