“I get up 6 days a week at 3:45 so I can swim at the Tysons YMCA because we just don't have the indoor facilities here. I sure would like to not have to get up that early, or inconvenience my family. If we had somewhere to swim like that indoors, year-round, it would be great. And it would bring more revenues to Reston, the businesses and restaurants where we shop and eat, especially after meets.”

Reston Community Center solicits public input on a new indoor recreation center at Baron Cameron Park.
Reston Community Center invited the public to bring their wish lists to an open forum meeting on Monday, Feb. 11, to discuss the potential development of a new indoor recreation center at Baron Cameron Park. In 2012, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors transferred 68 acres at the park to the Fairfax County Parks Authority, and Bill Bouie, who is both a member of the Reston Community Center Board of Governors, as well as the chairman of the parks authority Board told the assembly that the Reston Community Center is “an interested party” in the Fairfax County Parks Authority’s Master Planning Process about to begin in March.
