Ashburn, VA (January 15, 2017) –The Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services has initiated the public participation process for naming a new recreation center and a senior center located in the Dulles District.
Phase I of the project, currently known as the Dulles South Multipurpose Center, opened in July 2008 and features approximately 24,000 square feet of classrooms, meeting rooms, a large multipurpose room, an activities room, indoor recreation area, senior activity center, kitchen, restrooms and offices.
A bond referendum for the Phase II and Phase III expansion was approved by Loudoun County voters in 2013. The expansion will result in the first public recreation center and full-service senior center for communities in the area. Phase II provides for an 81,000-square-foot addition, with recreation and fitness areas, an elevated running track, a competition and leisure pool, a climbing wall and program facilities. A name is sought for the area comprising both Phase I (existing center) and Phase II (new recreation center).
A second name is sought for Phase III, which provides an additional 17,000 square feet for a full-service senior center. Features include office and program space, a small gymnasium, a large multipurpose room with adjoining commercial kitchen, an exercise/fitness room, classrooms, a game room and a computer lab. Construction of Phase II and III is anticipated to be complete in summer 2017.
