Dog Areas in Fairfax Station

Fairfax Station is 22 miles from Washington D.C. in the state of Virginia. The town is a pretty cozy community and has been expanding throughout the years thanks to the lower cost of living and the beautiful scenery and township that makes up the area. This also makes it much easier and pleasant to raise a dog in the town, and is made even better thanks to the dozens of acres of dog-friendly parks and three veterinarians ready to cater to your pup!

The gem of the town for dog lovers is the South Run Dog Park on the eastern edge of town. This park has a mixed terrain of sand, dirt and grassy patches, with over 3 acres of open land to run around in. There is a double-gated entrance, agility equipment for dogs to play on, and free water bowls and dog toys. Dogs can run freely off-leash from the hours of 9 AM to 10 PM, with nighttime lights and additional features like water, clean-up stations, benches, and trash bins.

If your pup doesn't mind being on a leash and needs more places to explore, walk on over to Burke Lake Park. This massive park spreads over 888 acres, with a large lake, forested trails, picnic areas, ballfields, a pavilion, and restrooms. Dogs can explore the trails which expand over 9 miles throughout the park, or play in the open fields. There are also clean-up bags, water fountains, and benches.

It doesn't matter if you're looking for a scenic area to explore, a free space for Fido, or a walk downtown, Fairfax Station will be sure to accommodate you and your pup!

    #3 Belmead

    Belmead is the eastern neighborhood of Fairfax Station, and one of the largest neighborhoods in town, with the largest population too. With so many people, residents and pups head to the South Run Park, a large park that's separate from the dog park in town, with open space, ballfields, and concrete walkways. Leashed pups are welcome at the park, and can find amenities like water fountains, clean-up stations, benches, and nighttime lights. A less traveled park is the Recreation Lake Park, a quiet wooded area next to Lake Mercer, with dirt and nature trails with spots for fishing, boating, and swimming for you and your dog. The area is undeveloped though, so remember to bring clean-up bags and water for Fido.
