County leaders attended a dedication ceremony on Sunday morning for the new recreation area.

“Adaptive sports programs help individuals to gain confidence, have fun, and make an impact on their lives,” said Recreation Director Gabe Albornoz. “We are proud of the addition of an adaptive sports court to serve individuals with disabilities in the County.”

According to a news release, construction on the Sports Court — a former unused roller hockey rink — was completed in late 2015 and cost approximately $250,000.

The 75 by 180 foot rink is now a multipurpose court that can support recreational services for individuals with disabilities.

According to the Department of Recreation, a variety of sports activities, most all adapted for the population, will be offered at this new location.

Other provider groups such as Special Olympics, Wounded Warriors, Potomac Community Resources and Kids Enjoy Exercise Now (KEEN) may apply for a permit to use the facility for their adapted programs.

“This adaptive sports court is a terrific example of what we can do when residents and government come together in a collaborative and inclusive way,” said Council President Nancy Floreen. “What a great addition to our County.”
