Under sunny skies, residents, officials and staff members gathered to celebrate the completion and official opening of the Laurel Hill Central Green located in Lorton, Virginia. Four reservable shelters offer seating capacities of up to 213 people each and provide a great space to host family gatherings, staff meeting and parties. The $3 million project included construction of the four pavilions, an accessible asphalt loop road, parking, trails and supporting infrastructure, including storm water management facilities and related site work. The project was funded via voter-approved Park Bonds.
