Leesburg, Va. (June 18, 2014) – At 6:00 p.m., on Thursday, June 26, 2014, Town of Leesburg officials will hold a ground breaking ceremony to mark the start of construction for Potomac Crossing Park. The new park is located at the end of Shanks Evans Road in the Potomac Crossing neighborhood in northeast Leesburg.
In February 2013, the Leesburg Parks and Recreation Commission unanimously endorsed a proposed design for the new park, which will include a playground, picnic shelter, open space and paved and primitive trails that connect to the trail network in the adjacent Ball’s Bluff Battlefield Regional Park. The Leesburg Town Council approved the park design and moved construction of the park from FY 2019 to FY 2015 in the Town’s Capital Improvement Program in July 2013.
Total cost for the construction of Potomac Crossing Park wil be $597,159 and will be funded from developer contributions. The construction is expected to be completed in late Fall 2014.

The ground breaking ceremony will be held rain or shine.
