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 on the park features currently includes the continued construction of boardwalks/piers, athletic field irrigation and lighting. Crews have begun underground plumbing rough-in at the splashpad and the installation of sod and sports netting posts at the athletic fields. 

At Hanson House, work on the stone chimney mortar joints and rough in for mechanical, electrical and plumbing has begun. Construction on the remaining structures throughout the park currently includes the installation of masonry walls, stonework, timber, siding and trim, windows, roofing, fire protection, interior painting, utility rough-in and ductwork. 

Ongoing work throughout the park includes the installation of underground utilities- 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.
