Welcome to Recreation & Parks!
The Recreation and Parks Department offers a year-round program of recreational and leisure-time activities for all age groups and interest levels. These programs include a variety of classes, athletic leagues, special events, and trips.
We sponsor special events throughout the year including the annual Memorial Day Parade and Festival, July 4 Fireworks, the Fall Festival, and Holiday Craft Show.
The Recreation and Parks Department is also responsible for managing and maintaining neighborhood parks and the Cherry Hill Farmhouse and Barn.
The Falls Church Community Center is the main location for the Recreation and Parks Department. The Community Center hosts the majority of our programs and is the location of our staff offices.
This family event features blacksmith demonstrations, horse-drawn hayrides, pumpkin painting, scarecrow making, and a petting zoo. Children can learn basic farming skills such as corn-shelling and beekeeping.
The carnival has been a popular event for children for more than 30 years. Infants through sixth graders are invited to enjoy carnival games, a moon bounce, face painting, crafts, a haunted house, movies, candy, and a live creepy creature show featuring the spookiest reptiles in nature.
The mission of the Falls Church Recreation & Parks Department is to provide a year-round program of recreation and leisure-time activities for all groups and interest levels. The Department is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life and fostering a sense of community by providing superior recreational, educational and cultural services and through the effective maintenance and protection of the City's natural resources.
