The county is building a new multi-use recreational facility in Brandywine, MD which is expected to open by the end of summer. At a cost of more than $36 million, The Southern Area Aquatic and Recreation Complex (SAARC) is the first Multi-Generational Community Recreational Center in Prince George’s County.
The 75,000 square-foot project includes a huge swimming pool, a gymnasium, a fitness room and flexible programmable space. It is being constructed on property owned by The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) – Brandywine Area Park – located just north of the intersection of Missouri Avenue and Brandywine Road. Future phases of parkland development may include additional site amenities, an expansion of the natatorium, and additional recreation space to accommodate performing arts and ceramic arts.
Personally, I'm looking forward to participating in a Yoga class and water aerobics once this place opens!
