Does anybody know if there is or will be a community center in the Gainesville area (like Ashburn Village or South Riding)? I think that would be a great addition to the community. It seems like most of the activities in the PWC Park Authority "Leisure" magazine are held in the Woodbridge or Dale City area.

Also, is there a nearby ice skating rink with youth hockey programs? I used to go to the Ashburn IceHouse, but from Gainesville it's like 30 miles!

I appreciate your comments.

No community center existing or in the works, that I know of. The closest we have is the Freedom Center, which has a lot of the types of activities also sponsored by the Parks Authority. You can also check out Vint Hill, which has activities through Fauquier County -- you'd have to pay out-of-county rates but it's close by and convenient.

As far as ice hockey, probably the closest rink is the one on Dale Blvd (I'm having a brain-fart on the name) near Woodbridge. They have a lot of kids' ice hockey teams and they're really not that far -- just take 234 to Hoadley to Dale Blvd. Used to take me 20-30 mins max when my daughter skated there.
