Beaverdam Reservoir

Beaverdam Reservoir

Loudoun Water and NOVA Parks have formed a joint partnership along with the community to reopen this wonderful local asset.


As NOVA Parks (formerly the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority) celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, looking to the early days can reveal some very interesting things. Today, we do just that, throwing it all the way back to that time and discovering how the first regional park, Bull Run, incorporated an already existing business into its grounds. And the amazing part is, the asset has been in continuous use since then and is just as popular as it ever was.

NOVA Parks has always been excited to help preserve the history of Northern Virginia. In doing so, the Park Authority has become stewards of many historic and cultural sites in the region. Being able to use these assets as a teaching tool for park visitors is a great joy to NOVA Parks, because within the history that is passed on at these places is an even greater story - the story of America.

In 2006, Aldie Mill became the 20th park in the NOVA Parks system. The 200-year old mill processed grain using the waters of the Little River, and it is one of the best-preserved mills in the entire Mid-Atlantic region. Prior to NOVA Parks’ ownership, the mill was owned by the Virginia Outdoor Foundation (VOF) and restored with a generous gift from the Mellon family.

THROWBACK THURSDAY--NOVA PARKS--ow, row, row your boat...

During the 1960’s, NOVA Parks acquired over 20 miles of river frontage on the Bull Run & Occoquan, including the Occoquan reservoir. This block of over 5,000 acres protects the source of drinking water for over 1 million people in Northern Virginia. With control of so much shoreline, recreational uses were needed that were also compatible with the conservation goals. One of those uses was scholastic rowing.

Throwback Thursday--The Power Plant That Never Was.

The story of Algonkian Regional Park may be one of fate or simply just one of luck. However one may think of it is up to them because in the end the park itself is simply a great gift to the Northern Virginia region. The park spans 838 acres next to the Potomac River, a swath of land that was once set aside for a coal burning power plant.

Thanks to all who are out for the cleanup day!

It's a beautiful day at Beaverdam Creek reservoir. Thank you to all the volunteers who have come out to help clean up the park and enjoy a peaceful morning on the trails.

This is a PSA to all of those out there who love the Reservoir like we do. Someone left us this nice present at the entrance by Reservoir Rd. Our staff cleaned it up this morning, but if anyone has any information on this dumping, please contact us at 703-327-3403. This is illegal dumping on parkland! If anyone has any information it would be very appreciated!

[08/05/17]   To all of those who are wondering, the Beaverdam trails are still open during 2017. The water remains off limits. Please stay tuned for updates.

Reservoir Park Plans Spark Excitement in Loudoun

We are so excited to unveil the plans for the new park at Beaverdam Reservoir. NOVA Parks and Loudoun Water will be working together over the next three years to bring you something spectacular. After a year of planning, the designs for a new park at the Beaverdam Creek Reservoir in Ashburn were unveiled during a community forum Wednesday night. After buying the reservoir from the City of Fairfax in 2014, Loudoun Water teamed up with NOVA Parks to manage recreational uses at the site. Th

Don't forget about today's open house, 7pm-9pm at the NRPA Building off Belmont Ridge Rd.

[11/27/16]   Come out to the Beaverdam Reservoir open house on 12/14/16 at 7:00pm

It's amazing how different it looks when it's drained

The water is closed at Beaverdam, but the trails remain open. Don't forget there is parking with access to the trails at the NRPA building off Belmont Ridge Rd.

New signage and fencing up at Beaverdam. As of Nov 1st, the water is off limits. Please read the signage for details or contact us at 703-327-3403 for specific questions.

Beaverdam Reservoir to be Reborn

Just a reminder to everyone that the closing of Beaverdam Reservoir is approaching very quickly! Loudoun’s largest lake is a quiet place, disturbed only by singing insects, birds on the wing, wind in the trees, and paddles lapping up the water. It’s also artificial, and it’s getting drained in November. The county’s largest water utility, Loudoun Water, will partially drain Beaverdam Reservo

This is why people come out to Beaverdam

Beautiful view of Beaverdam at dusk. Don't forget Beaverdam Reservoir shuts down 11/1/16 for a 2 year renovation, so come enjoy it now!

Good morning, folks! It is going to be the hottest day we have seen this year. Please pay attention to your body and warning signs for heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Overheating can be a very dangerous situation, especially for little ones and elderly. Make sure you bring plenty of water for all outdoor activities and spend time in shaded, cooler spots. #heatwave2016

Park at Loudoun reservoir to close for two years for repairs

A necessary read for all Beaverdam enthusiasts: Beaverdam remains open until Nov. 1 for recreational use of water and trails.

A big shout out to Paddle NOVA! My 10-year old and I had a great day trying out stand-up paddle boarding! Not only was it a fantastic, new experience — we received personalized one-on-one instruction and felt safe, comfortable, and confident! Our guide, Alex L. was patient, knowledgeable, and very encouraging. He was especially wonderful with my daughter, even recognizing her skills and teaching her a few extra “tricks!” And for the record, stand-up paddle boarding is really a lot of fun! I highly recommend!

[07/02/16]   What a beautiful morning, come out and enjoy the Beaverdam Reservoir!
