V. Parks and Recreation

V. Parks and Recreation Mission Statement: The Fauquier County Parks and Recreation Department is dedicated to the enhancement of the quality of life for all people in Fauquier County. Working in partnership with the people, the Department shall provide the leadership to assure that citizens receive high quality recreational facilities and services, and to assure the preservation of local history. A. Existing Facilities The Fauquier County Department of Parks and Recreation manages 844 acres of recreational facilities located in four service areas (Central, Eastern, Southern and Northern). The facilities include 10 parks, 116 acres of water, 52 sports fields, 3 community centers, 4.5 miles of trails, 1 theater, 1 pool, and 4 historic sites that serve over 65,000 residents and an estimated 540,000 visitors per year. Maps 2, 3, 4 and 5 show the location and names of facilities utilized for recreational purposes. Table 5 lists the activities offered at each of the facilities. B. Facility Standards / Level of Service The Fauquier County Park and Recreation Board adopted the Fauquier County Park, Recreation and Open Space Comprehensive Plan in May 1993 to help guide this Board and the Board of Supervisors on the minimum standards and qualifications for recreational needs to suit a given population. The Plan has numerous categories of play and recreation and a recommended standard associates with each use. While all the uses are too numerous to mention in this Plan for Public Facilities, standards for sports fields are provided herein. The Parks and Recreation Plan also recommends 5 miles of trails per 1,000 residents. For a population of 66,800 in 2008, this equates to approximately 340 miles of trails (including hiking, equestrian, multi-use, etc.) that could be both public or privately built and maintained, but accessible to the public. Given the rural nature of Fauquier County, it is more realistic that the majority of this standard of trails will be private. The County has made strides toward planning for much-needed trails by adopting the Fauquier County Connections Plan in 2008 by reference in the Comprehensive Plan. This Plan calls for approximately 140 miles of trials, equating to a standard of about 2 miles per 1,000 residents. The Connections Plan provides the justification, rationale and general location for trails within service districts. Through the subdivision and site plan process, planners are able to refer to that plan for guidance in obtaining new trails. As a trail network becomes more clearly focused, it will be necessary for the County to provide planning and resources to complete key links. It is recommended that the Capital Improvement Program fund an annual amount dedicated to complete key links in the trail network within designated service districts and as outlined in the Fauquier County Connections Plan. It is also recommended that the County work with the Towns of Warrenton and Remington to ensure a complete and fluid network of trails extending from each town into the surrounding service district land areas.
