It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters in the end.

- Ursula K. LeGuin



A Great Place
Bles Park, located in Ashburn, Virginia, is a 124 acre park that includes 94-acres of passive park land with walking, birding and hiking trails.

Trails run along fields, wetlands and a stream which offer a nice diversity of species. In the spring and summer you can hear Cricket frogs, Pickerel frogs, and Gray Tree Frogs calling.

Bles is a great place to see a variety of migratory song birds as well as those summer warblers that nest here. Beautiful wildflowers bring in a great diversity of butterflies and dragonflies and damselflies hunt the stream edges and fields.
