Established in 1954, Mount Vernon Park is a non-profit, member association located at the corner of Lafayette Drive and Fairfax Road in Hollin Hall Village. Please note memberships are not based on local home ownership and are not transferable.
Set on nearly 13 acres of wooded parkland, the Park is the focus of summer activity for 600 families. MVP members enjoy 3 pools (25 meter, 50 meter and wading), 4 lighted tennis courts (open year round), a large picnic area with grills, grass volleyball court, a children’s playground, a covered pavilion, and a 1 acre pond for fishing. The Park and swimming pools open on Memorial Day weekend and close after Labor Day.
Operating hours once schools are out in late June are generally 11 AM to 9 PM Monday through Saturday and Noon to 9 PM on Sunday through Labor Day. Always check the calendar and main page for possible changes to Park hours.
During the summer season, MVPA is a center of activity. Our swim team, ages 5 through 18, competes in the Northern Virginia Swim League. The Women‘s, Girl’s and Boy’s tennis teams compete in the Mount Vernon Community Tennis League.
Throughout the summer, the MVPA Activities Committee sponsors activities for all ages including a 4th July Celebration, Crab Feast, End of School pizza dance party, children’s crafts and more. Our Aqua Aerobics classes and early morning Masters Adult Swim program are also ways to stay active.

Apply now to reserve your place on the waiting list. The wait list is currently 1-2 years depending on the yearly turnover and number of applications received. When contacted, you pay an initiation fee of $800. This fee is expected to increase and the increase will be posted Feb 16, 2023. The Initiation Fee is non-refundable.
In addition, currently the yearly membership fee due by March 31 (2022) is $530.00 plus $74.00 for each member over 1 year of age by June 1st. (eg. a family of four would pay $826). Through our work day program, $125 of your dues is refundable (see below). Arrangements can also be made for childcare providers to have park access while with member children and the fee is $74 per season per provider. Dues are prorated if you join during the season. Please be aware that a dues increase will be decided at the Feb 15, 2023 annual meeting so these amounts will change and be posted on Feb 16, 2023.
Included in the yearly dues is a capital improvements fee of $175 per membership certificate per year. This helps us to maintain, renovate and improve the Park. Adult members age 16+ may help out for 8 hours at our Work Days over 2 weekends in late April/early May to earn back $125 of their family’s dues each year. $125 is the maximum that can be earned per membership annually.
Once you’re offered a membership, your initiation fee and dues are paid online by credit card. Then you may register for various activities and buy guest passes and snack bar tickets online with a credit card. Checks and credit cards are accepted at the gatehouse, however, purchasing online with a credit card is faster and preferred.
