Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett today officially opened the White Oak Community Recreation Center at a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony. The new center is located at 1700 April Lane in Silver Spring.
The new 33,000-square-foot center sits on 10 acres and provides a spacious social hall with full-service kitchen, community rooms and an expansive arts and crafts studio. The exercise and fitness amenities include a full-size gymnasium, state-of-the-art exercise and fitness room, outdoor athletic courts and playgrounds, skate spot, multiple purpose athletic fields and Montgomery County Recreation’s first rock climbing wall. An additional unique feature of the center is the dedicated space that will serve as the White Oak Community Senior Center.
The White Oak Community Recreation Center is environmentally friendly and conserves energy, meeting the standards for a LEED Gold Building. The architect for the $16 million project was Grimm and Parker Architects and construction was done by EE Reed Construction, LP.
