Kempsville Recreation Center

Location: Virginia Beach, VA
Square Feet: 87,116
Market: All Markets
Special Features: LEED
Located just off Princess Anne Road, Kempsville Recreation Center originally opened in 1977 as Virginia Beach's first community recreation center. The new $32M state-of-the-art LEED Silver certified Kempsville Recreation Center opened with great anticipation in June 2017.

The City of Virginia Beach’s 87,116 sf single-level facility features a lap and leisure pool, outdoor spray ground, elevated walking track, two-court gymnasium, fitness center, multi-purpose spaces, and child care facility along with locker rooms and other support space. LEED Silver certified, the project includes a geothermal HVAC system.

In 2013, our firm also served on the team which analyzed the feasibility of modernizing Kempsville Recreation Center versus complete replacement whereas complete replacement was found to be the most cost-effective.
