Spring Hill RECenter Expansion to Get Underway

Spring Hill RECenter

Spring Hill RECenter will be substantially expanded over the next sixteen months, bringing new features and improved facilities to the thousands of patrons who regularly enjoy this Fairfax County Park Authority amenity. From swimmers to fitness buffs, those who take classes to those who play racquetball, the expansion promises to make a visit more exciting, comfortable and family-friendly. The public is invited to attend a brief ground breaking ceremony on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 10 a.m.  The RECenter is located at 1239 Spring Hill Road in McLean.

This is a $10 million expansion funded by the 2008 and 2012 Park Bond programs.  Spring Hill RECenter currently is a 44,062 square-foot facility that houses a heated pool, diving boards, saunas, dance studio, racquetball court, multi-purpose room and fitness center.  The expansion will provide a two-story fitness center, a gymnasium with an elevated running track, new office space and utility upgrades. The gymnasium will feature a single high school basketball court with two overlay basketball courts, as well as a volleyball overlay court. 

Additionally, substantial renovations will be made to the locker room area to include upgrades to the current showers and the construction of five, family cabanas.  A new administration desk will improve site security and customer service.  Flooring replacement, painting, and the conversion of the existing fitness room into multi-purpose rooms will be included in the project.  The RECenter expansion, including the gym and fitness center, is set to open to the public December 2014, while the renovation work to the existing fitness area will be completed February 2015.

Spring Hill RECenter was initially opened in 1988. While these improvements present an inconvenience to current customers, these capital improvements are necessary to meet the changing interests of customers and were sanctioned in the Park Authority’s Financial Sustainability Plan adopted by the Park Board last year. Customers displaced by the construction are able to avail themselves of similar facilities at the other eight Park Authority RECenters in Fairfax County.
