The Town of Leesburg is an ideal place to live, work, and play. The award winning Town of Leesburg Parks and Recreation Department maintains over 400 acres of parkland across 16 parks, including playgrounds, pools, tennis courts, picnic pavilions, multi-use trails, and even a skate park. The department offers over three thousand recreational programs annually. King Street, the North/South road bisecting downtown, is the parade route for several annual celebrations, including Halloween, July Fourth, and Christmas.
The Downtown Business Association promotes regular events, two of the more popular being Leesburg First Fridays and Acoustic on the Green. The businesses of Downtown Leesburg invite patrons to stroll in and out and enjoy special performances, exhibits, and other events on the first Friday evening of every month. Acoustic on the Green is a free summer concert series held Saturday nights on the Town Green where picnics are encouraged and local musicians entertain.
Runners, walkers, cyclists, skaters, and even horseback riders will enjoy the section of the W&OD trail which crosses the town. The Washington and Old Dominion trail is a 45-mile long, 100-foot wide multi-use rail-trail owned and operated by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority. The park is open from dawn to dusk and is even used by some area bicycle commuters as a route across Loudoun County and beyond.
Two open-air Farmers’ Markets operate in Leesburg, one year round, and another seasonal market in the warmer months. Both are growers markets, meaning vendors are also growers/producers, and all must be from within a 125-mile radius of Loudoun County. These markets are an ideal place to buy locally grown foods and locally produced products, meet the farmers and small businesspeople, and mingle with the community.Read More ▾
