Parking to be limited due to road paving at PEAR Park

RELEASE DATE: August 21, 2015

LEESBURG — Parking will be limited at Palatlakaha Environmental and Agricultural Reserve (PEAR) Park Gateway, located at 26701 U.S. Highway 27, while road improvements are underway from Monday, Aug. 24 to Wednesday, Aug. 26.

The parking lot closest to the dog park off of U.S. Highway 27 will be inaccessible during this time. Park goers who normally use the dog park, rental pavilion, softball fields and playground area must instead park near the pickleball courts. 

Those visiting during this time should expect the pickleball parking lot to be heavily used, and note that the lot is about 1,000 feet to the ballfields, and 150 feet to the dog park. All dogs are required to be on a 6-foot or shorter leash when not inside the dog park area.

PEAR Park is the largest county park, at 318 acres, and features two areas. The Gateway is the front 50 acres, features a playground, tennis, basketball and pickleball courts, ballfields, canoe and kayak launch and dog park. The remaining 268 acres, known as the wildlife conservation area (WCA), features a community garden, native butterfly garden, xeric garden, nature center, pavilions and access to hiking and nature trails.
