Terry L. Smith Aquatics Center

Reston, VA


Reston Community Center reopened the newly renovated Terry L. Smith Aquatics Center in January 2020. The venue, part of the original RCC Hunters Woods facility built in 1979, has been completely rebuilt to provide two new pools and accompanying infrastructure improvements to better serve the Reston community.

The pool opening marks the completion of more than three years of work, from community discussions to design, of the year-long construction phase of the project. Following a concept development engagement process, the new facility features a 25-yard lap pool with beach entry and water play features plus an adjacent warm-water teaching and exercise pool. Other renovations include a new roof, all new equipment systems for water filtration and air-handling, updated and more effective storm water management, and improvements to the locker rooms.
