Ida Lee Park Maintenance Building

Project Description: This new facility, completed in March 2011, was built to serve as the operations center for maintenance of all Town parks.  The new facility is within Ida Lee Park near the Parks and Recreation headquarters farmhouse building and adjacent to the barn.    This facility replaces the previous maintenance operations structure which was housed in an inadequate old shed.


The new facility includes:

  • Ida Lee Park Maintenance Building Roof

    Environmentally-friendly "green" roof

    Operations building (approximately 2,000 square feet) to support equipment maintenance and personnel (with service bays, work stations, and storage).  The building is embedded in the hillside embankment, and has an environmentally-friendly "green" roof.  The building also includes storage areas for the master gardeners, whose plots are nearby.
  • Parking lot and access road
  • Outside storage bins
  • Plant Trellises

In September 2012, Leesburg's Parks and Recreation Department won four awards, one of which was for the Best New Building for the new maintenance building, among communities with populations of 25,001 and 50,000.  The award was won at the 58th annual conference of the Virginia Recreation and Park Society (VRPS).  The VRPS’ annual awards are a prestigious statewide program that honors individuals, agencies and organizations throughout Virginia who have demonstrated excellence in any of several areas during the previous year.
