On December 7th, 2021 the Virginia Beach City Council was briefed on plans for a new recreation center in the Centerville district. The briefing was prepared in part by a consultant who identified 5 potential locations, 3 in Virginia Beach and 2 in Chesapeake, and 5 potential building designs. 

  • Building Option 1 is a Community Recreation Center with Aquatics similar in size to Williams Farm Community Recreation Center.
  • Building Option 2 is the same as Option 1 but adds a connected Public Library with some shared support spaces.
  • Building Option 3 adds a Large Multi-Activity Court (Big MAC) facility to Building Option 2.
  • Building Option 4 adds a 50-meter Competition Pool plus 750 spectator seats and sports team locker rooms and meeting facilities to Building Option 3.
  • Building Option 5 eliminates the connected Public Library from Building Option 4.
