    June 26 to September 6, 2021 Closure for Scheduled Facility Improvements

    The Chinquapin Park Recreation Center and Aquatics Facility will be closed from Saturday, June 26 through Monday, September 6 to facilitate several planned facility improvements and annual cleaning. The scope of the facility improvements is highly invasive and requires the temporary full closure of the facility to ensure public safety, reduce costs, and shorten the improvement period to minimize community impact. For additional information and to follow the status of facility improvements, visit the 2021 Chinquapin Improvements Webpage.

    During this closure, all valid Chinquapin passes will be suspended. Passes will be reactivated on September 7, 2021, meaning that all original pass expiration dates will be moved forward by 73 days. This ensures that no paid pass days are lost.

    As Chinquapin pass fees are higher than neighborhood center fitness fees and outdoor pool fees, it is recommended that Chinquapin passholders who wish to use these facilities purchase a pass or daily admission at those locations during the Chinquapin closure. 

    If a Chinquapin passholder prefers to use their Chinquapin pass at a neighborhood center or outdoor pool, this request will be granted and the suspension of that individual pass will be lifted. Please note that this will forfeit the 73 day pass expiration extension.

    For assistance with Chinquapin passes, please contact Ann.Redfearn@alexandriava.gov or Jacquay.Plummer@alexandriava.gov.
