Park Authority RECenters - System-wide Sustainability Plan


Last year's Needs Assessment Survey revealed that residents put a high priority on recreational facilities and see a general need for upgrades across the park system. In response, the Park Authority has hired Brailsford & Dunlavey, Inc. (B&D), CENTERS, and Hughes Group Architects (HGA), a nationally-recognized, independent consulting team, to develop a system-wide sustainability plan for the RECenters. The project team will look at potential future operational and facility improvements that effectively and efficiently help to meet the indoor recreation needs of Fairfax County residents. Efforts will include a system-wide facilities assessment, market and competitive analysis, operations and program analysis, and community engagement.

The Fairfax County Park Authority held a Public Information Meeting on Wednesday, September 21, 2016, to present information on our system-wide study. A second public information meeting will be scheduled this winter. In addition, FCPA conducted a Community Interest Survey in October and is hosting a series of focus meetings throughout the RECenters to gather information about the community’s needs.
