Beaverdam Reservoir

Loudoun Water and NOVA Parks have formed a joint partnership along with the community to reopen this wonderful local asset.

With the weekend upon us we want to emphasize the need to limit groups to less than 10 people in our parks. Social distancing guidelines should be followed while on our trails and in the parks. We can all do our part to flatten the curve.

Throwback Thursday--Row Your Boat
Today we want to re-visit one of our most popular Throwback Thursday stories from 2019. The story of the creation of Sandy Run Regional Park and its significant regatta facility.

In the 1970’s, NOVA Parks teamed up with the vocational education program of Fairfax County Public Schools. Boat houses and other related facilities were built in what became Sandy Run Regional Park. With great sight lines from its miles of waterfront and minimal current in the reservoir, Sandy Run is a significant regatta facility today, hosting competitions with thousands of spectators and participants.

For the complete story please visit: http://ow.ly/4yg350z9Ohr

[04/06/20]   Good Morning Followers,

Just a friendly reminder that pets must remain on leash and under a person's control at all times, per the Loudoun County Leash Law. We would also like to remind visitors that domestic animals are not permitted in the water at Beaverdam Reservoir. Beaverdam Reservoir, owned by Loudoun Water, is first and foremost a source of public drinking water so the #1 priority is to keep the water safe and clean.

Thank you for your attention.

To report an emergency, call 911. To report suspicious activity, please call the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number 703-777-1021. NOVA Parks staff may be contacted by calling 703-327-3403.

As a reminder, all NOVA Parks gates and parking lots are closed. Please do not drive to our parks to access the trails. We urge you to use the trails you can access through walking or biking. Groups of more than 10 people are strictly prohibited. Social distancing should be maintained at all times.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

YOU can be an everyday hero by simply adhering to Governor Northam’s order to limit travel to essential travel only. Please find exercise and recreation options that are available within walking or biking distance from your home. The faster we flatten the curve the faster we can re-open our parks.
