Lovettsville Community Park
Loudoun County purchased the site for the new 91-acre Lovettsville Community Park in 2004. The Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services, Town of Lovettsville, Lovettsville Park Advisory Committee, and the Lovettsville Community Center Advisory Board are working together to develop this as a community park.
The park site is located across the street from the Lovettsville Community Center and connects to the Lovettsville Elementary School. When completed, this new park will have both active and passive features including:
- a historical interpretive exhibit,
- an off-leash dog park,
- an outdoor performance area,
- picnic pavilions,
- playing fields, and
- riding and walking trails.
The first phase of development has been completed and includes changes to the intersection of East Broad Way and Milltown Road and the installation of a walking trail connecting the Lovettsville Community Center to the Lovettsville Elementary School. More information about this park can be found on the Loudoun County Website.
Lovettsville Community Center Replacement
Loudoun County has approved funding to design and construct a new Lovettsville Community Center on the site of the current community center. The Board of Supervisors approved this option during the FY 2014 CIP budget deliberations as a cost effective way of delivering a modern, community center facility for County residents without additional land acquisition costs.
The new Community Center is expected to be over 13,000 square feet and is anticipated to have a full size gymnasium, 5 classrooms, a multipurpose room, small kitchen, administrative offices, meeting space, storage areas, and a new pool house.
The Lovettsville Community Center (57 East Broad Way) provides a wide range of fun and educational activities for all ages. The center has a large outdoor swimming pool, along with a playground, tennis courts, and gymnasium. Visit their website or call 540-822-5284 for more information.
Lovettsville Fire Station Replacement
In 2005, a comprehensive engineering report of the County’s fire-rescue facilities was completed to evaluate existing conditions and
programmatic shortages of current facilities and provide recommendations for facility improvements to ensure the operational
success of the County’s Fire and Rescue System. Lovettsville Fire-Rescue Station #12 was among the properties evaluated and
found to be in need of facility expansion and comprehensive renovation.
A two-phased renovation project was agreed to by County and Volunteer Fire Department leadership, incorporating the short term use
of modular units to provide crew quarters, followed by the VFD’s request for funding assistance to renovate and expand the existing Fire
Station, consistent with design work that the VFD had previously contracted. The facility is currently in the design development phase.
The Lovettsville Volunteer Fire Company requested funding to completely replace the existing station, with design and construction to be managed by the County.
