Reston Community Center Eyes Renovated Pools Reopening In December 2019


Please read the Press Release for the information about the RCC Pool Renovation Project and updated calendar. Once the “substantial completion” milestone is achieved on December 3, RCC plans to accomplish the following:

  • Staff training and orientation to the new natatorium environment and equipment systems.
  • Supervised practice hours for South Lakes High School and Reston Masters swim teams as early as feasible; our target is for their limited use to begin December 4. Of course, this depends on having obtained the occupancy permit.
  • Access for the contractor to complete remaining “punch list” items as effectively and efficiently as possible during the early part of each day while swim team practices occur in the afternoon and evening hours.
  • Provide full access to the public again in roughly mid-December. That access will be for general open swimming and lap lane use; swim team practices and holiday hours will also be on the schedule, when applicable, through the end of the month. We will keep the public informed via this webpage and email updates as we get closer to the end of construction.
  • As RCC’s “Welcome Home” appreciation gift, all open swimming access (from the day we reopen to the public through December 31) will be charged just $1 per person, regardless of age for Reston patrons.
  • Regular Reston pricing will resume on January 1, but pricing has been frozen at the 2018 levels for the entire year, 2020, in recognition of the sacrifice made by our patrons during the 2019 construction year.
  • We can’t wait to see our swimmers back in the water at the Terry L. Smith Aquatics Center!
