Posted on September 13, 2021 at 10:54 AM by Heidi Kellum

Construction work continues on the various structures and features throughout Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park, currently under construction on Evergreen Mills Road in Arcola. Athletic fields with turf and lighting, buildings, paths and other features are under construction throughout the park. When completed, the park will feature 17 lighted athletic fields, including two artificial turf fields and one cricket field; five ponds; the historic Hanson House; an event lodge and nature center; a skate plaza and disc golf course; a splash pad and playground with inclusive features and over 75 acres of passive recreational space. 

Over the next few weeks, crews will continue installing retaining walls, sports netting posts and scoreboards at the athletic fields. Current work on park features also includes the installation of fence posts at the off-leash dog area. Work on various structures throughout the park continues to progress, including the installation of masonry walls, stonework, timber, siding and trim, windows, roofing, insulation, and fire protection. Crews have also begun interior painting, placing mechanical units, utility rough-in and ductwork. At Hanson House, crews have begun painting the exterior siding and door frames.

Ongoing work throughout the park includes installation of underground utilities, electrical transformers, installation of turf irrigation systems and pouring concrete at stairs, plazas and bleacher pads. Crews will also continue earthwork, paving asphalt trails, and the spreading of topsoil, mulch and seeding throughout the project site.

The Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park project includes the design and construction of a new 257-acre regional park located on Evergreen Mills Road in Arcola, between the Brambleton and Willowsford communities. The park will be operated by the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services and is estimated for completion in spring of 2022.
