On January 17, 2019, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors directed the Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Board to develop a detailed implementation plan for an interconnected, countywide linear parks and trails system. PROS subsequently appointed representatives from key stakeholder groups to the Linear Parks and Trails (LPAT) Subcommittee to advance the initiative. 

The project, awarded to Design Workshop in Raleigh, North Carolina, was initiated November 2020. The timeline for completion is six to eight months, with completion by May 2021. Full execution of the plan will take several years.

The interconnected, countywide linear parks and trails system will provide a variety of functions and benefits, including recreation, alternative transportation, wildlife habitat, water quality protection, flood hazard reduction, aquifer recharge, erosion prevention, property value enhancement, economic development and scenic beauty. 

Public engagement is a vital part of this planning initiative. Over the next several months, citizens will have opportunities to participate, including virtual meetings and surveys. Residents are encouraged to complete an online survey, submit comments and find more information about the Linear Parks and Trails system project at loudoun.gov/linearparksandtrails. Inquiries and comments can also be sent by email to [email protected]
