Overview

  • The Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park project includes the design and construction of a new 257-acre regional park located at 23345 Hanson Park Drive, in Aldie, between the Brambleton and Willowsford communities.
  • The owner of the land -- Haldore ‘Hal’ Hanson, a writer, U.S. State Department official and nonprofit leader -- died in 1992.
  • In keeping with the wishes of Hanson and his wife Berni, the Hanson Family Partnership agreed to sell the land to Loudoun County only for use as a park.
  • The property was acquired in 2009 through negotiations with the Hanson family, Dominion Power and the National Park Service as a part of a United States Department of Interior program.
  • The public helped shape the park’s features, and skate park designer Wally Holladay served as a design consultant.
  • The project also includes road improvements to Evergreen Mills Road, which bisects the park, including a turn lane and a stop light at the entrance of the park.
  • The park will include 17 athletic fields with lighting, and over 75 acres of passive recreational space and infrastructure.
