Wakefield is a census-designated place in Fairfax County, Virginia. The population as of the 2010 Census was 11,275.[1] Bounded by the Capital Beltway, Little River Turnpike, Guinea Road and Braddock Road, the CDP draws much of its identity from Wakefield Chapel, an 1899-built Methodist church that is now owned by the county Park Authority and still available as a chapel. Wakefield Chapel Road bisects the CDP, and Wakefield Park Recreation Center and several subdivisions bear the Wakefield name. Northern Virginia Community College's Annandale Campus is also here.
