Tim Eakin Walsh is a fourth generation member of the LeRoy Eakin family who donated the first parcel of land to Fairfax County and the Fairfax County Park Authority. From the initial 15 acre parcel donation, additional land donations were made by the family over the years helping to create or expand Eakin Community Park, Eakin Mantua Park and the Accotink Stream Valley Park.
Tim is honored to serve on his family's behalf. He is the third Eakin family member to serve on the Foundation's Board since its inception.
Involved in real estate since 1992, Tim is currently a real estate investor and Realtor with RE/MAX Premier specializing in selling new homes and land development. He enjoys forming strategic partnerships between land owners, builders and developers.
Tim has lived in Northern Virginia all his life and enjoyed many County parks (especially those with soccer fields and basketball courts!) when growing up in McLean, Virginia. Today, he often utilizes Frying Pan Farm Park with his wife Ayda, daughter Kaylee and son Ace.
Tim hopes to help encourage other individuals, families and companies to follow in his family's footsteps by creating a legacy through donating land to the Park Authority and/or establishing a trust fund through the Park Foundation. The Eakin family also established a trust fund for the ongoing maintenance and repair of Eakin Park.
