FX CO park board weighs rules to limit 'walk-ons' on county fields

FX CO park board weighs rules to limit 'walk-ons' on county fields
New rules under consideration by the Fairfax County Park Authority Board would severely curtail the use of parks for casual, pick-up games of soccer and other sports.

Under current policy, if a field is not in use by a group that reserved it in advance, a “walk-on” group, with up to 40 participants (including spectators), can use it. The proposed rule would cut that number in half.

All county parks would be affected, including Mason District Park, Annandale Community Park, and Roundtree Park in the Annandale area.
