Summer Fun: Spend Summer at South Run

South Run RECenter offers plenty to do whether a person is looking for some time outside in the sun or searching for some shade indoors.

The RECenter has a natatorium with an indoor pool with two diving boards and a wading area. It also has a spa and sauna. The indoor center has a fitness center with cardio and training equipment, as well as a racquetball court. The fitness center also provides "drop-in anytime" fitness classes. Cored conditioning, spin, and yoga classes are just a few of the variety of group exercise classes available. Classes are free for those who have a Fairfax County RECenter Pass, while those who do not have a pass are required to pay a fee.

Class listings are posted at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/rec/srun/srun-fit.htm.

Outside, the RECenter has a variety of fields for softball, baseball and soccer. It has also basketball and tennis courts. A sundeck and a playground for children are located outside.

The park has a trail that runs from Lake Mercer to Burke Lake. Off of one of the trails, the park offers an off-leash dog area. The area is open to friendly dogs to run around the fenced in area without leashes. All dogs that are over the age of 4-months must be licensed. More information concerning dog licensing and the dog park rules and regulations are posted at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/wp-offleash.htm.

South Run RECenter also provides summer camps for children. Some families do not need a full day program, so we offer several half-day options. Some working parents need full day coverage, therefore, we offer full day camps with extended care options at the RECenters," said Ellen B. Werthmann, the youth program specialist.

The recreation center is located at 7550 Reservation Drive.
