On our way to Maryland the other day we stopped by the Lucketts Community Center off of Route 15 and Lucketts Road in Leesburg, VA. The Community Center is currently being renovated but the large fenced in playground and rental pavilion is still accessible from the parking lot. The Lucketts Community Park is located off of Route 15 and includes lit soccer field, softball field, and walking/biking nature trails.
The fenced in playground consists of two large pieces of play equipment and both types of swings. In the morning hours there isn’t much shade but as the sun moves the large trees behind the equipment give it great shade. Currently a portion of the parking lot is closed off for renovations on the old school house but ther are some spots available to park. A porta potty is available by the entrance and was clean when we visited.
The kids had a great time at the park but we ran out of time and weren’t able to check out the nature trails by the sports fields. Guess we’ll just have to check it out again! Lucketts is a great little town with one traffic light and several antique stores. While you’re out there you should check out Temple Hall Farm off of Route 15 too!
Foxridge Park in Leesburg, VA is a nice park located off of Catoctin Circle SW in the Town of Leesburg. The park has a great picnic shelter, playground, baseball field, and walking paths with access to W & OD Trail.
The playground was nice including two pieces of play equipment and swings. Nice indoor restrooms are located by the baseball field not far from the playground. The picnic pavilion is under great shade and the perfect place for a picnic lunch. The walking trails are nice and wind throughout the park and neighborhood.
This is very cute park located in the Town of Leesburg!
Last week we checked out Tuscarora Creek Park in the Town of Leesburg, VA. A local Dad had told me about the park along with a few others. The park gets it’s name from the Tuscarora Creek which sits below the park near the W & OD Trail. Trail access is available right next to the park and a paved path takes you down a slight hill to the trail.
The park has one piece of play equipment which is more appropriate for the older kids than the younger crowd. There are both toddler and regular swings available. There is no shade over the equipment but the kids can escape the sun either under the pavilion or amongst the trees that surround the park. A picnic pavilion is available to rent along with the restrooms. Sadly the restrooms are only available during the rental periods.
The Tuscarora Creek Park in Loudoun County is small but great if you live near the Battlefield Parkway Expansion Bridge. With access to the W & OD Trail if you live near you could use the trail to access the park. An added bonus is the small creek down the paved trail where the kiddos can check out the frogs and throw rocks into the water.
Yesterday we were shopping in Leesburg and stumbled across Douglass Community Park. This great fenced in park is located off E. Market Street behind the Douglass Community Center. The W & OD Trail runs by the paved trail to the community center and is another great way to get to the park.
The Loudoun County playground has two large pieces of play equipment, one small piece of equipment, a small rock wall, and two sets of swings. The equipment was in great condition with a few of the pieces being brand new. With the leaves on the trees the park has lots of shade including the picnic shelter near the playground. Restrooms are available inside the playground and according to a Dad at the park they have a porta potty near the park from April to October.
This is a great community park in Old Town Leesburg with lots of things for the kids to do!
Yesterday we checked out Ida Lee Park in Leesburg, VA for the first time. This Western Loudoun County park is very nice. It includes a community garden share, water park, tennis courts, basketball courts, walking trails, library, recreation center and two playgrounds. Since we were coming from Potomac Falls we had a nice drive through the historic section of Leesburg to arrive at the park.
When we went it was in the afternoon hours and the playground was in complete shade. There was plenty of benches and picnic tables to sit and watch the kids play. Also a small shaded pavillion was available for groups or parties. A porta potty was available next to the park but the library is very close if you want a clean indoor restroom. The play equipment was in great shape and the kids had a blast.
We are definitely going to come back and play at this park again! The kids had a great time and the park was nice and clean.
