Reston Gets Land for New Athletic Field

Reston is officially one step closer to getting a new athletic field.

Hunters East LLC has granted the Fairfax County Park Authority a little over seven acres at the northeast intersection of Hunter Mill Road and the Dulles Toll Road, according to a county release.

The proffer agreement calls for the property to be used as an athletic field or other recreational amenities. The agreement is intended to ensure that residents of Brookfield Properties’ Halley Rise mixed-use development have enough green space.

The 36-acre redevelopment project is set to open its first phase of residential units in early 2022. The project is located at 12010 Sunrise Valley Drive.

The plan calls for the full-size rectangular athletic field to be constructed on the land. The project will also include an 80-space parking lot, picnic pavilion, stormwater pond, and an area for an unidentified recreational amenity.

FCPA did not indicate when the field would be constructed. Construction is contingent on available funds from proffers, park bonds and other funding sources.

Hunters East paid 8.4 million for the property in 2018. The county did not immediately return a request for comment.
