True to form, our headquarters for NRPA is situated on park land. Our spectacular facilities are a part of Brambleton Regional Park, a facility owned and operated by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority. NRPA is owned by its members; the land is leased from the NVRPA. We are surrounded by sports fields on the north and east sides of our building, and a beautiful pond and golf course to the south and west. It's a truly inspiring location for our staff to do great work in support of parks and recreation.
