Neighborhood Parks 3 and 4

Grounds & Facilities Committee Releases its Recommendation for the Comprehensive Park Plans – Resident Comment Period Open

After a year of input, discussions, and study, the Grounds & Facilities Committee (Committee) has submitted its recommendation for Parks 3 and 4 to the BCA Board of Directors (Board) for their consideration and adoption.  The proposed Comprehensive Park Plans set a general vision for future enhancements at the parks.  The recommendations do not set a priority, timing, or funding for the various projects within the plan.  The Committee’s recommendation considers the current site conditions and balances the needs and concerns related to the desires to enhance the park amenities available to Brambleton’s residents.  

Resident Comment Period: There will be a two-week Resident Comment Period during which Brambleton residents throughout the neighborhood are encouraged to review the recommendation and proposed comprehensive park plans, and provide the Board with comments and feedback on the plans.  The recommendation and supporting documents are posted on this page.  These are the documents that the Committee provided to the Board as part of its recommendation. 

  • Resident Comment Period:  Friday, March 10th – Friday, March 24th at 12:00 PM
  • Park Comments can be emailed to:
  • Emails should include Resident’s name and address at a minimum.

The Board is also holding a special meeting to hear resident input on the Committee’s Comprehensive Park Plan recommendation.  The Resident Forum portion of this meeting will begin promptly at 7:00pm; doors open at 6:45pm.  Each resident who signs up to speak may be given up to 3 minutes to communicate to the Board. 

Special Board Meeting Information:

  • Location: Brambleton Corner Clubhouse, 42255 Palladian Blue Terrace
  • Date: Tuesday, March 28, 2017
  • Time: Meeting starts at 7:00pm; doors open at 6:45pm

Once the Board reviews the plan, considers residents feedback on the plan, and discusses it, they will take action on the Committee’s recommendation.  The timing of that action is not known at this time. 

Brambleton Community Association (Association or BCA) remains committed to transparency and will continue to update residents through the website, Friday Flash, emails, and newsletters. 

Project and Process Background
The Association desires a balanced park system that will provide active and passive recreational opportunities that will improve and enhance the lifestyle and health of all residents within our community.  BCA will accomplish this through a strategic and comprehensive process that will involve residents in every step of the planning process while considering its mission, vision, and core values.

The Association desires to develop a comprehensive plan for two additional neighborhood parks.  Parker Rodriguez ("Firm"), a landscape architecture and land planning firm, has been hired by the Association to facilitate the design process.  The Firm kicked off the process with two design charrettes in May 2016.  The design charrettes were workshops in which residents provided input through small groups to help develop the first draft of the comprehensive plans for Brambleton’s next two neighborhood parks.  Additionally, a questionnaire was available to residents to provide feedback on the proposed neighborhood parks during the month of May 2016.

The first draft of the comprehensive plans for the neighborhood parks was created by the Firm based on the feedback and input they received from the design charrettes, questionnaires, the Committee, and the Association.  The first draft of the comprehensive plans was created in early August 2016.

Resident input on the first draft of the comprehensive plans was solicited during the month of August 2016.  The Committee and the Association reviewed all the feedback they received on the first draft of the comprehensive plans, conducted site visits, and worked together with the Firm to create a second draft of the comprehensive plans. The second draft of the comprehensive plans was developed in October 2016.

The Association and Committee held a resident input period for the second draft of the comprehensive park plans during the month of October 2016.  The Committee and Association reviewed and considered all of the resident input, site conditions, and future and existing county amenities, and the Board adopted the Recreation Districts and Park Classification document to create a recommendation to the Board for the comprehensive park plans.  The recommendation was completed by the Committee and has been shared with the Board.  The Board is now seeking resident input on the Committee’s recommendation.  

Neighborhood Park in Recreation District 3: Consists of the open space along the trail that begins near Creighton and Northstar and heads south through the woods to the east of Northstar.  This neighborhood park continues south past Morning Walk and ends at Belmont Ridge and Myan Gold; or just west of Stratford Landing Pool.

Neighborhood Park in Recreation District 4: Consists of the open and undeveloped area along the trail in Section 21, starting east of Belmont Ridge Road at Creighton Road and heading south to Virginia Rose Drive and the large pond (Pond 6) that can be seen from Creighton Road near Loudoun Valley.
