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, offering 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.
