Van Dyke Skatepark, Fairfax Virgina

WHERE: 3730 Old Lee Hwy, Fairfax, Virginia 20004

WHAT: Metal ramps on an outdoor, concrete surface. This park has a 4 foot mini ramp, various banks and quarter pipes, a box, and a few rails.

GOOD: No one seems to enforce any of the rules, but if they did, “Bicycles, Scooters or Rollerblades are prohibited in the Skate Park” is one of them. The times I have been there, it has been pretty empty.

BAD: It’s kind of generic.

PADS: Supposedly, all pads are required, but I’ve never seen anybody even wear a helmet.

FREE OR PAY: free

DIRECTIONS:

OVERALL: It’s a well-made, run-of-the-mill park. Pretty fun, but has no real surprises.
