Park Partnership Makes for Happy Faces In Small Spaces

Park Authority partnerships are transforming park land spaces, large and small, into enriching environments of activity, imagination and adventure all across Fairfax County! But don’t just take our word for it. A recent blog post by the International Mountain Bicycling Association highlights the impactful story of Brookfield Park in Springfield, Virginia.

Doing A Lot With A Little in Brookfieldtells of our fantastic partnership with TrailsforYouth.org in a small park serving a diverse community. Together, with the support of the Springfield Civic Association and Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts, we built a pumptrack for mountain bikers of all skill levels that has become a popular hot spot for riders of all ages. Learn how we are inspiring confidence, developing cycling skills, and fostering a love of being active and of being outdoors at Brookfield Park. Read the full story here.
