County to Conduct Light-Level Testing at Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park

Posted on August 2, 2022 at 8:36 AM by Heidi Kellum

Loudoun County is scheduled to conduct light level-testing in the evening hours at the new Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park athletic fields for two weeks beginning Tuesday, August 9, 2022, weather permitting. Residents will notice increased activity at the park prior to the testing date.  

During the light-level testing, athletic field lights will be turned on and off and dimmed. The county will begin testing at dusk and will continue for several hours. If inclement weather delays testing, plans call for tests to continue each successive workday following August 9 until the testing can be completed. 

This light-level testing is part of the ongoing project to construct 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 (PRCS). Construction is estimated to be completed in August 2022. The installation of furniture and equipment is underway and PRCS is readying the park for its opening.
