Lake Fairfax Skatepark Overview
Lake Fairfax Skatepark is located in Lake Fairfax Park, a sprawling wooded park in Reston, Virginia, situated between Dulles International Airport and Tysons Corner. The skatepark was designed by California-based Spohn Ranch and opened in 2012.
The outdoor facility is an open rectangular plaza with restrooms and plenty of parking. At the northern end of the park is a clover-shaped combi bowl, with three sections that are 4, 6, and 8 feet high with 8-foot transitions.
The street plaza features banks, ledges, manny pads, stairs, handrails, and flat rails. Other elements include an A-frame, with a matching hubba, rail and gap, and a spine feature that looks like a shark fin rising out of the cement.
