Expand our Parks & Trail Networks

You’ve made clear that parks, recreation, and open spaces are extremely important to you, and I have listened and delivered. My record of expanding our parks, trails and open spaces is clear, and If given the opportunity, I will continue these efforts in order to keep Loudoun beautiful, keep your families healthy, increase tourism and ensure that Loudoun remains a great place to live, learn, work, play and raise a family. 


RECORD OF RESULTS: 

  • Worked with colleagues and LCPS to secure new county-owned public use site for the future park adjacent to Lightridge High School near Willowsford.

  • Helped secure 280 acres of land to be added to 600 existing acres for use as new 900 acre State Park in northwestern Loudoun. This will be Loudoun’s first State Park.  

  • Supported the opening of Round Hill’s Sleeter Lake Park, thus providing the first county-owned publicly accessible lake in Loudoun.
