Groundbreaking held for future Ashburn Rec Center

A long-awaited day finally arrived Thursday morning. That’s when county officials joined local residents to celebrate the ceremonial groundbreaking for the future Ashburn Recreation Center.

The new center is being built on a parcel of land roughly between the Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm restaurant and the Lidl grocery store, off Broadlands Boulevard.

The 117,000 s.f. center will feature a large swimming pool, basketball courts, classrooms, fitness equipment, a running track, a splash pad, and much more. For a full list of amenities, see our recent report here.

Construction on the 117,000 s.f. center is expected to wrap up in 2025 and then the Loudoun County Parks, Recreation & Community Services department will take over to operate the facility.
