[ARCHIVED] Pavilion Project at Gwen Thompson Briar Patch Park Delayed

Graphic with Parks Update

The Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services previously announced planned renovation projects at Gwen Thompson Briar Patch Park, including replacement of the picnic pavilion, followed by renovation of the volleyball court. Initially projected for completion in May, 2021, construction of the new pavilion has been delayed until mid-June due to a lack of supply of acceptable fill dirt. To ensure the safety of patrons and access for equipment, some areas of the park may be temporarily closed during renovation projects. The public is asked to respect any construction fencing and signs placed on the property. 

 Previously completed construction and renovation projects at the park include:      

  • Playground redesign with shade structures and rubber flooring.
  • Trail access and replacement.
  • Upgraded tennis court, including pickleball.
  • Bridge replacements.
  • A retaining wall.
  • Installation of an outdoor fitness court.
  • Swing set replacement.

The park is located at 21660 Sterling Boulevard, Sterling, Virginia, 20174. For more information, visit or email [email protected]
