Fairfax City Parks & Recreation is committed to bringing our community together even during times where we can’t be together in person. Social distancing does not mean disconnecting!
Please join us on Facebook through this Facebook event Fairfax Fundayz over the upcoming weeks as we post daily activities and opportunities for our residents of all ages to do from home. 🏡 This includes live games, arts & crafts, educational activities, exercise and more!
