Crews continue construction work 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. 

Work on various structures throughout the park continues to progress. Crews are installing siding and trim, windows, roofing, insulation, fire protection, interior painting, utility rough-in and ductwork. Crews have also begun caulking, to hang drywall, and installing interior floor finishes and ceramic tile. At Hanson House, crews are caulking and painting exterior siding.

Throughout the park, ongoing work includes installation of underground utilities, electrical transformers, installation of turf irrigation systems and pouring concrete at site stairs, plazas and sidewalks. Crews also continue to pave asphalt trails, install athletic field turf, and spread 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.
