Philip A. Bolen Park opened in the spring of 2011. It is named for the late Mr. Bolen, the former Loudoun County administrator. His widow, Claudia, is the former principal of Harper Park Middle School. The road leading into the park is named Claudia Drive. The park has more lighted ball fields than anywhere else in Loudoun, including football, lacrosse, soccer, baseball and softball. It is very busy every weekend.
Go south on Sycolin Road off the Route 7 Bypass. Turn left at the park and ride and go past it to the park. Drive very slowly to the first left, the entrance to the football/lacrosse fields parking lot. Park on the right side of the lot and look in front of you for a trestle bridge for walkers. Walk down the pathway. (Always try to stay on the paved surfaces as they are trying to get grass to grow in the park.) Walk to the sign that says #5. At ther sign turn to your left. You will see three trees growing together. One of them is broken. Your prize is at the base of the broken tree. Rehide well please.
Walk across the bridge and to your right going around the back of the big championship baseball field. You will see the second bridge ahead of you. Go across the bridge to its end. Your prize is on your left at 300 degrees. Check under the pier and rehide well please.
Walk across the parking lot and across Claudia Drive. You will see the last bridge to your left across the meadow. You are at Bridge #3. Before you walk across the bridge at 90 degrees you will find your prize under the pier. Please rehide so it cannot be seen.
We hope you have enjoyed the park. Maybe you will see a ball game while you are here. Park staff are very supportive of letterboxing and welcome more boxes in the park. In 2012 more than 200 acres of wooded trails are planned
