Centers and the Vienna Community Center.
If you haven't, check out the water park at Bull Run Regional Park, Bull Run - Atlantis Waterpark out in Centreville. Another good one.

Yes, we've been there, too. They are both run by Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority. They also run Pirate's Cove at Pohick, Upton Hill in Arlington, and Great Waves in Alexandria. I've only been to Bull Run and Algonkian. They are both great waterparks, but I prefer Algonkian for the younger children because the 1/2 foot pool is huge and contains lots of waterslides and the big bucket that dumps water plus a beach entrance. At Bull Run, the "baby" pool is much smaller and only has one small slide. The majority of their slides and splashers are part of a splash pad or in the big pool, so it's better for older children, in my opinion.
