    Default Future of Morven Park

    Anyone have insight into the future plans of Morven Park? I've gotten a few emails over the last days/weeks about planning and know that there was a public meeting earlier this week.

    Is it ultimately destined for soccer fields?

    Morven is destined for multi-use, I'm afraid, now that Leesburg really is a suburb of D.C.. It's too bad.

    On the other hand, Whiskey and I are considering the Paul Ebersole gymnastic clinic planned at Morven Park in a few weeks.

    The new plans for the equestrian center, athletic fields and garden tour are displayed in the link below.

    The athletic fields look to be where the current rings are down the hill(s). On the other side of Arena Road & tree line is where the Grand Prix field will be. It looks to be in the Steeplechase course.

    New indoor, outdoor rings, stabling, parking will be where the old indoor and old barns are now standing.

    Has there been any information released on when these changes will occur? Everything I've read seems very vague on a timeline. I did read on another board that Morven Park is removing two equestrian outdoor arenas and putting in two soccer fields. They also have plans to relocate the large rings, but no funding. They plan on opening the soccer fields in August of this year.

    It is good to see that they have an equestrian center manager again.
