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:
Environmentally-friendly "green" roof
- 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.
