As the new Patrick Henry Recreation Center (4653 Taney Avenue) wraps up some of the final improvements, the city is putting together a new advisory council to shape what’s next for the rec center.

Recreation Parks and Cultural Activities (RPCA) is hosting a meeting early next month to determine interest in a new Council to shape the future of the Patrick Henry Rec Center.

“Join us for the Advisory Council Interest Meeting on Tuesday, 10/3, 6-7 p.m.,” RPCA wrote in a tweet. “Let’s shape the future of Patrick Henry Rec Center by sharing our insights, organizing events, and championing community needs. Together, we’ll build a better Alexandria!”

The recently rebuilt recreation center opened in 2019. A new turf field, playground and parking lot are scheduled to be completed sometime this fall.
