Town of Leesburg Extends Park Hours for Pokemon Go Players

July 29, 2016 2:08 pm

The Leesburg Police Department released the following statement today.

There seems to be many places in and around the Town of Leesburg that are "hotspots" for the popular Pokémon Go game. Many of these spots include the Town Parks. In an effort to accommodate players of this game, the Town of Leesburg has extended several park hours from Dawn until 10:00 PM. These parks are Ida Lee Park (60 Ida Lee Drive), Georgetown Park (221 South King Street), and Raflo Park (345 Harrison Street). It is also important to note that all other Town Parks are CLOSED at dusk. This includes the W&OD trail. We have been seeing players in the parks as late as 2:00 AM. Persons found on Town Park property after hours are considered trespassing and can be charged under Virginia Code.
The police department encourages all users to practice safe playing techniques and always be aware of your surroundings. We have witnessed players with their faces buried in their smartphones walking out into traffic, not using crosswalks, and generally walking aimlessly around unaware of other pedestrians or motor vehicles.
Here are some helpful safety tips to keep in mind:
• The best way to catch Pokémon is on foot but be sure to look both ways before crossing the street.
• Take care of our Parks and Pokestops and do not litter. Your fellow trainers and Pokémon will thank you.
• Be courteous of those around you that are using the parks for running, walking, biking, or other physical activities.
• Avoid suspicious locations. If you are hunting at night be aware of your surroundings.
The police department recognizes that it is exciting when you come across those rare characters and have a chance to catch them, but please remain cognizant of your surroundings. Please do not attempt to drive a motor vehicle and play the game at the same time."

July 27, 2016 12:03 pm

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a spa in the comfort of your own home? Your bathroom is a private, quiet space and it’s where you go to take a nice relaxing bath or shower to de-stress. All you need to do is add a few more elements to create your own spa atmosphere at home. Use these hacks and tricks to give your bathroom a spa makeover.

  • Use minimal decor and a clean, simple style to achieve a serene and spa-like setting.
  • Soften your lighting and get a relaxing feel by installing lights with dimmer controls.
  • Create a barrier, such as a dramatic shower curtain or large plants, to make yourself feel a bit transported
  • De-clutter your bathroom by keeping your toiletries well organized or hidden.
  • Keep your bath salts and soaps in attractive containers. The presentation of everything will really make a difference.
  • Invest in a towel warmer or use towel-warming bars.
  • Use lavender or jasmine scented candles or oil diffusers. Aromatherapy is a huge part of a spa atmosphere.
  • Create a playlist of relaxing and meditating songs to play while you’re soaking in the tub.
