Darrell Winslow served as a member of the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority for 28 years, 18 of them as the Executive Director.  With service starting in 1966, for the next 30 years he oversaw creation of the regional parks at Bull Run, Occoquan, Algonkian, Hemlock Overlook, Upton Hill, Balls Bluff Battlefield, and even the development of our beloved rowing facilities at Sandy Run.  He's also responsible for the awesome wave pool at Cameron Run Regional Park, the land for Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, and the Brambleton Golf Course.   

Winslow helped develop the national reputation of the Fairfax County parks system, and has provided millions of residents with enjoyment and open space.  He is considered to be one of the principal architects of NVRPA.  Check out the Parks Blog HERE for more information about the remarkable contributions of Darrell Winslow to our county.
