New beauty meets us at every step in all our wanderings.

A Great Place
Olde Izaak Walton Park is a nice wooded refuge of 21 acres in Leesburg.

With a 3 1/2 acre pond, it attracts not only woodland birds but also a variety of ducks, geese, herons and more.

A stream that runs through the park and into the pond attracts kingfishers which can be heard rattling off their call.

The park has a walking trail that runs around the pond that is nice for a nature stroll.

Of special interest is an old quarry that in springtime may capture water and serve as a vernal pool for amphibians.

Bring your binoculars and check out what's wild.
