Extensive Renovations Completed at Ossian Hall Park

Renovations are complete at Ossian Hall Park, a 22-acre community park in the Braddock District. Ossian Hall Park is located on the corner of Heritage Drive and Four Year Run next to Annandale High School at 7900 Heritage Drive in Annandale, VA. The park was the site of the 18th century Ossian Hall plantation owned by the Fitzhugh family as part of the Ravensworth Land Grant. It was burned in 1959 by the Annandale Fire Department as a training exercise.

Renovations at the park have added new recreational amenities:

  • a new community plaza area,
  • attractive natural stone retaining walls,
  • new landscaping,
  • two new playgrounds,
  • two multi-use courts, and
  • a 180-ft x 360-ft synthetic turf field were installed.

Overhanging tree limbs were trimmed back to improve visibility and new asphalt trails wind through the wooded park. The parking lot was increased to include 120 spaces.

Renovations and improvements also include Fairfax County Park Authority’s first underground Low Impact Design (LID) Stormwater Facility. The park has also added state-of-the-art LED lighting fixtures throughout the site improve the park’s illumination.
