Southern Area Aquatic and Recreation Complex (SAARC)
Planning for a new regional community center in the Southern Area of Prince George’s County is well underway. This facility, currently referred to as the Southern Area Aquatic and Recreation Complex (SAARC), will include indoor aquatic space, a gymnasium, a fitness room and flexible programmable space. It will be 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.
The Southern Area Aquatic and Recreation Complex (SAARC) will be a multi-generational facility, as envisioned in the Adopted Formula 2040 Functional Master Plan for Parks, Recreation and Open Space. Multi-generational facilities provide an array of programs, simultaneously, to serve the recreation and leisure needs and interests of an entire family - not just one age group.
