"Our organization enjoys an excellent partnership with Reston Community Center, but it would be great to have more adaptable space for classes and programs. About 250 of our 1000 members are here in Reston. Sometimes we have to turn people away, or even not hold a program, just for lack of space. We do use the Hunters Wood and Lake Anne facilities, as well as rental space, but locally we are really maxed out. And we would like to continue, as well as expand the excellent speakers and programs we offer."
-Thom Clement, executive director of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

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.
