The Town of Herndon Parks and Recreation department offers physical and leisurely activities for the community, supports the local arts, and collaborates with virtually every community group, building cooperation and cohesiveness in Herndon and the surrounding communities. We constantly strive to enrich the lives of our residents, serve as stewards of Town resources, and foster a sense of community by providing diverse, accessible and valued parks, facilities and recreation programs.
The department oversees the operation of the Herndon Community Center, located at 814 Ferndale Avenue. The year-round center offers a comprehensive leisure program and encompasses a multi-purpose rooms, gymnasium, three racquetball courts, fitness facility and training studio, catering kitchen, arts and crafts room, childcare and preschool rooms. The aquatics facility includes an eight-lane, 25-yard indoor swimming pool, diving and instructional areas, whirlpool, sauna, shower, and lockers. The indoor tennis center operates October through April and includes three tennis courts for reserved play time, leagues, lessons, and other activities. The department also sponsors many popular special events - the Herndon Festival and Labor Day Festival - and oversees the operation of eleven neighborhood parks.
