The redevelopment of Hunters Woods ballfield will begin within the next month, Reston Association says.
The project will include a new pathway network, new landscaping, park furniture, improved storm drainage and a free little library.
“We are excited to share this update on the long-awaited Hunters Woods Ballfield Redevelopment Project,” RA wrote in a statement.
During construction, the site will be restricted. All trail users should follow posted signage and detours to ensure safety.
The concept plan for the field — which is not in use largely due to lack of parking and its remote location — was approved in 2020.
A pathway will line the perimeter of the site, and another formal walkway is planned through the middle of the site. Landscaping, bench seating and education signage are planned along some of the paths.
RA began geological testing at the ballfield in April 2022 as part of Fairfax County’s permitting and site plan approval process.
The Hunters Woods Neighborhood Coalition encouraged RA to repurpose the ball field, which is no longer used by the Reston-Herndon Little League.
Consultant Kimley-Horn Associates has been working with RA on the project.
