Welcome to Morven Park

The Pedestrian Entrance to the Park on Old Waterford Road is open.
We recognize being outdoors in nature is a great way to get much-needed fresh air and exercise and have decided to allow limited access to Park grounds in the interest of public health. Morven Park gates and parking lots will remain closed due to the fact that we cannot regulate the number of vehicles/people visiting the Park at any given time and need to remain in compliance with the federal directive to discourage crowds and large groups from gathering. Please note, all restrooms and Park buildings remain closed.

Consider following Morven Park on Facebook for updates on our closure and event cancellations.

Please keep the safety and well-being of our visitors and staff in mind as you visit the Park grounds.

  • If you are sick and/or experiencing symptoms consistent with the COVID-19 infection, please refrain from entering the Park.
  • In accordance with current CDC recommendations, please limit the size of your group to 5 people or fewer.
  • Guests are strongly encouraged to follow social distancing guidelines by keeping a distance of 6 feet or more between you and other guests.
  • All restrooms and buildings are closed. Please avoid common areas and refrain from touching doorknobs, kiosks, etc.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • If you have questions or feedback, please email

While we can open this entrance, Morven Park’s other entrances will remain closed and many Park events have been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 crisis. We ask you to remember that we are not a county or state funded Park with the same safety net and support system as other facilities. We need your support now more than ever to weather this storm. Morven Park is a nonprofit that relies on donations to remain open. Make a donation that will make a difference at

Morven Park is a 1,000-acre historic estate in Leesburg, Virginia. Owned and operated by a nonprofit organization, Morven Park relies on your donations to keep our gates open to the public year-round.

This year, the Morven Park Center for Civic Impact planned to have 10,412 total student interactions, with 4,527 of those interactions taking place between March 12th and June 10th. As in many homes throughout the county, when schools closed on March 12th, we were confused and uncertain about what might happen next. We contacted the schools we had been scheduled to visit during the next four school days, focused on other projects, and thought we would return to the classroom soon.

Like so many venues, Morven Park International Equestrian Center in Leesburg, VA, had an eerily quiet spring. Its Spring Horse Trials, scheduled for March 28-29, was canceled — for the first time in 46 years.

We’re glad to hear that the horse trials’ rescheduling request has been approved. The formerly “Spring” but now “Winter” H.T. will take place Nov. 14-15, 2020, and feature Beginner Novice through Preliminary levels.
