The Virginia Recreation and Parks Society Awards and Citations Commission determine award winners in 14 different categories from all over the Commonwealth of Virginia--the Stacy C. Sherwood Center was nominated for, and won, the prestigious Best New Facility Award.
Opened in 2011, the Stacy C. Sherwood Community Center was built by money donated by Geraldine Sherwood to honor her husband, Stacy C. Sherwood, a former city council member and local businessman. The center now caters to a wide range of arts, activities and programs run through the City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation. This center is also used as a venue for weddings, private business and social activities. The state of the art technology and assistive listening system make the Sherwood an ideal business venue for conferences and meetings of all sizes.
