Idylwood Park Renovations in Falls Church Completed

New improvements recently completed are designed to make Idylwood Park (7715 Virginia Lane) in Falls Church a little more accessible.

The park is tucked into the northeast corner of the I-66 and I-495 interchange.

According to the Fairfax County Park Authority website:

The project included fully paving the parking lot, which had been comprised of compacted gravel that presented maintenance and accessibility issues. Contractors from Southern Asphalt improved the parking lot and drive to comply with [Americans with Disabilities Act] accessibility requirements. Additional striped parking spaces were added by reconfiguring the overall layout to be more efficient.

Renovations started in June 2018, during which the park was accessible only via foot traffic.

The total cost of the project was $309,732, provided through Fairfax County’s infrastructure project fund.
