Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation is developing plans to replace the Kempsville Community Recreation Center, located at 800 Monmouth Lane in the heart of Kempsville. This recreation center opened in 1977 and is the city of Virginia Beach’s oldest - and second most busy - recreation center.
Although the facility is much loved and often visited, it is over 35 years old. A facility assessment completed in 2009 rated the overall condition of the facility as “poor.” Improvements are needed for accessibility and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance, and the plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems are nearing the end of their lifecycles. The existing pool and associated infrastructure require significant additional renovation.
The draft concept plan includes:
- double gymnasium
- indoor walking/jogging track
- fitness areas with: free weights, circuit weight equipment and cardiovascular equipment
- group fitness class / dance space
- pool with: zero-depth entry, 6 25-meter lap lanes, leisure pool and indoor water play components
- outdoor sprayground
- therapeutic recreation program space
- locker rooms and family changing areas
- improved parking and pedestrian access
- front desk closer to entrance
Please review the draft concept plan and post your responses.
