Governor Bob McDonnell announces Loudoun County will be home to Virginia's newest state park.
The governor stated on Friday that the Old Dominion Land Conservancy of Purcellville has reached an agreement with the Department of Conservation and Recreation to donate 600 acres for a state park.
The Commonwealth has 36 state parks open for the public. The new property will join state lands in Albemarle, Gloucester and Shenandoah counties that are in various stages of development as future state parks.
The state park system sees more than eight million visits per year with an annual economic impact to the surrounding communities of about $206 million.
