Bull Run Regional Par
This part of the country typically experiences four distinct seasons, including warm summers and the potential for snow in the winter. Centreville's Bull Run Regional Park is a great place to enjoy all these seasons with a wide variety of activities. At this park you can do everything from go camping to shoot skeet year-round. Bull Run Park features miles of hiking trails, a pool, and even a disc golf course. You can also rent shelter areas for picnic gatherings. This park's stunning array of activity options includes a waterpark with multiple waterslides and a kids' play area.
Chartered in 1792, Centreville is one of the oldest towns in its county. As such, this area is home to many historic buildings and sites that date back several centuries. These sites include the St. John's Episcopal Church. This church's first congregation was formed in 1844, and the currently standing building's structure, constructed in 1867, was built on its original foundation after the original building sustained damage during the Civil War. Older sites include the Mount Gilead house, a building with a somewhat uncertain history that is estimated to have begun in 1785, and the Sully Historic Site, a house built in 1794.
Because Centreville is a census-designated place, it does not have its own government to administer public services like education. Instead, the public school system that serves this area is overseen by Fairfax County. This means that school children in this area who attend public school may end up going to school outside of Centreville proper. However, if this is the case, kids will end up at a school that has an address in a very close by neighboring town such as Chantilly or Clifton. The Fairfax County school system is one of the country's largest public school districts.
