Williams Farm Recreation Center- An Award Winning Facility!

Williams Farm Community Recreation Center won the “Best New Facility Bricks & Mortar” Award from Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation.

The unique design solution for the Williams Farm Community Recreation Center was the result of an extensive and fruitful community engagement process that involved the Newtown and Lake Edward Communities and focused on improving family recreation opportunities and creating a synergy with adjacent educational opportunities (Tri-School Campus) and open park space. The resulting vision was to create a “beacon of healthy and vibrant family recreation on the corner”. The community recreation center is a 70,993 square foot facility with amenities that include:

Multipurpose gymnasium
Large, unique indoor pool area with an indoor water playground, lap lanes, slide, and aquatic rock-climbing wall
Daycare classrooms
