The new community center in Sully will open its doors next month | FFXnow

A great opening for the new Sully community center is scheduled for September 17 at noon, celebrating the conclusion of a nearly $22 million project by Fairfax County.

County Council members and county officials will celebrate the opening of the nearly 36,000 square foot center, located on five acres at the intersection of Wall Road and the Air and Air Museum Parkway. space in Chantilly.

The establishment is the new headquarters of the Sully Senior Center, which previously operated in rented premises in Chantilly. It also includes a 4,000 square foot healthcare suite managed by HealthWorks for Northern Virginia.

“I am thrilled that the new Sully Community Center is opening its doors to provide a wide range of accessible programs and services to surrounding communities,” Sully District Supervisor Kathy Smith said in a statement to FFXnow. “The exciting addition of the healthcare suite will provide closer access to primary healthcare for those who have encountered barriers in accessing healthcare.”

Programs include after-school classes, facility rentals, fitness classes, gym sports, and meeting space. The Fairfax County Park Authority also offers specialty camps, garden plots, school-age child care, youth camps, and recreation services.

Smith noted that the county’s partnership with the park authority has also resulted in the addition of gym spaces and pickleball courts.

The center cost about $22 million to build. Overall costs are pending as the project is still being finalized, a county spokesperson told FFXnow.

Construction on the project began in October 2020.
