Fairfax County enjoys a very strong transportation infrastructure, allowing Oak Hill residents to make use of the many conveniences throughout the region. U.S. Route 50, State Route 267 and Interstates 66 and 495 provide access to neighboring communities and counties. Additionally, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority operates Metrobus and Metrorail services within the county. Oak Hill's proximity to Washington-Dulles International Airport also provides for travel to more distant destinations.
The retail centers of Oak Hill provide residents with all their everyday shopping needs. For traditional mall shopping, residents can take a short drive to the regional malls in Springfield and Fair Oaks or to the brand-name outlet centers in Leesburg and Prince William. Tysons Corner Center, one of the East Coast's premier shopping destinations, is located in McLean, about 10 miles from Oak Hill. Tysons Corner Center is home to almost 300 reputable retailers.
County parks, recreation centers, public golf courses and historic sites are managed by the Fairfax County Park Authority, known locally as the FCPA. There are seven golf facilities within the system, ranging from nine to 36 holes in size. The largest of these is Twin Lakes in Clifton, which features two championship courses: the Oaks Course and the Lakes Course.
Other noteworthy sites in the FCPA system are Frying Pan Park and Lake Fairfax Park. Frying Pan Park is not only a recreational facility, but also an important historic and educational site. With its historic buildings and working demonstration dairy farm, Frying Pan Park promotes appreciation for earlier eras, when this region was mainly dairy farm country. The park also has a large equestrian facility that is used for open riding and all types of competitive events. Lake Fairfax Park is a 476-acre site in Reston that features a lake, outdoor swimming facility, campgrounds, trails and picnic sites.
One of Oak Hill's largest neighborhoods is Franklin Farm, a former working dairy farm that was transformed into a balanced, suburban haven in the 1970s. The Oak Hill/Franklin Farm area is primarily residential and maintains a close connection to the outdoors. Walking paths link streets to wooded areas, ponds and other recreation areas.
