The Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services announces the upcoming closure of the playground at the Potomack Lakes Sportsplex for a planned replacement project. 

To ensure the safety of patrons and access to equipment, the playground will be closed beginning Friday, March 1, 2024. The public is asked to heed any construction fencing and signs placed on the property. The new playground is anticipated to be completed by winter 2024, weather permitting. The Potomack Lakes Sportsplex will remain open to the public throughout the playground replacement project. 

Once installed, the new playground will feature play elements for children of all ages and will emphasize greater accessibility including an Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible surface, accessible entrances and inclusive playground equipment. Some of the unique features include a dual-track ride offering children of various abilities the opportunity to play together and feel the thrill of a zipline-type experience, a sensory maze, and a viper swing. The viper swing offers a large rope swing for multiple users and is not found in any surrounding Virginia counties.

The Potomack Lakes Sportsplex is located at 20280 Cascades Parkway in Sterling, VA, and consists of over 40 acres for active use. For more information, visit loudoun.gov/prcs.
