Over the next several weeks, crews will continue to construct the various structures and features throughout Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park, currently under construction on Evergreen Mills Road in Arcola. 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.
Work to construct the various structures throughout the park currently includes the installation of concrete masonry walls, stonework, timber, siding and trim, windows, roofing, fire protection, utility rough-in, and ductwork. Where walls and ceilings are fully installed, interior painting has begun. At Hanson House, crews are demolishing the existing roof and chimney stonework in preparation for reconstruction.
Crews will continue work on park features, including the construction of boardwalks/piers, mulching at trails, playground equipment installation, athletic field irrigation and lighting, and concrete formwork at the splashpad. Ongoing work throughout the park includes earthwork, asphalt paving, curb and gutter installation, and the spreading of topsoil, mulch and seeding.
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.
