Southgate Community Day Celebrating Facility’s First Decade

Note: Community Day 2016 has been cancelled.

Southgate Community Center is turning 10!

The entire community is invited to the 2016 Southgate Community Day Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Southgate Community Center is located at 12125 Pinecrest Rd.

There will be family activities, food, music, entertainment and the annual Southgate’s Got Talent show.

“It’s a great opportunity for neighbors to come and socialize, meet other neighbors, and have your kids enjoy moon bounces, popcorns, free county candy,” says Southgate Community Center Director Richard Cabellos. “Community Day is definitely a celebration of everything Southgate has to offer and also a celebration of the partners who helped Southgate become what it is today.”

The new Southgate Community Center opened in July 0f 2006. The project was a joint effort by Reston Association; the local Southgate and Stonegate communities; the Reston Community Center; and a number of county agencies, including the Fairfax County Police Department.

The group gathered grants and bonds to pay for the $4.5 million center, which offers recreational and educational programming for an underserved population.

The new Southgate replaced an aging basketball court and pool with a 7,733-square-foot facility that has room for a variety of indoor and outdoor programs. The property on which the Southgate Community Center is built is owned by the Reston Association, but leased by Fairfax County. Reston Association members voted to lease the property to Fairfax County for a period of 99 years.
