Fairfax Park Authority revamps rules on alcohol – Inside NoVA

The Fairfax County Park Authority has updated its policy on the use of alcoholic beverages in county parks, allowing for alcohol consumption under specific conditions.

The new policy recently was authorized by the Park Authority board of directors.

According to county officials, the sale, use, consumption or possession of alcohol on the properties is now authorized if part of a Park Authority program or approved in advance via a permitting process outlined in the new policy.

The change in policy comes in response to an increasing number of requests for alcohol use at park facilities for gatherings and events of all types, and is the result of a study period that began in late 2016 and included input from the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, the Fairfax County Police Department, the county’s Risk Management Division and the Office of the County Attorney.

Alcoholic beverages will be allowed only in the designated areas at the parks and facilities. The applicant, host or event sponsor must be present at the event and agree to indemnify and hold harmless the county government with respect to all claims or losses, including injuries or property damages as a result of the use of Park Authority property.
