Grand opening scheduled for Hanson Regional Park in Aldie

Exciting news — Loudoun County residents will soon have another massive regional park for them to recreate in and enjoy.

Officials have announced that the grand opening ceremony for the Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park will be held on September 23.

The 257-acre park is located off Evergreen Mills Road in Aldie, between the Brambleton and Willowsford communities.

Here is a list of the many amenities available at the park:

  • Cricket pitch

Below is a map showing how the park was conceived.

The original owner of the land was Hal Hanson, a U.S. State Department official and nonprofit leader, who died in 1992. The Hanson family agreed to sell the land to Loudoun County only for use as a park.

The community is invited to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony for the park on Friday, September 23 at 5:30 p.m. The ceremony will take place at the park’s Championship Plaza Field No. 1, located at 23345 Hanson Park Drive.
