Individuals with disabilities can contact the Department prior to an event or the start of a program to request disability- related accommodations. Adaptive aids and resources are available to assist qualified individuals. Requests for accommodations require a 72-hour notice.

To that end the Department has a variety of means to help offset fees and has established a scholarship fund to allow participation in many other community recreation programs. Please contact any of the regional offices for more information. And a special thanks to USA Swimming for its contribution to help keep swimming scholarships viable for another year!

  7. 7. Fauquier County Government, including Parks and Recreation, has been working on updating all departmental websites. The website redesigns should be completed in early spring including a new park finder application that will allow users to find county parks, facilities and greenways by location, name, and activities. On December 4, 2015 a crowd of theater enthusiasts, patrons, county and town officials gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony and the unveiling of a fresh new look inside the Theater on the Green at Vint Hill. Seat cushions, covers, and arms have been replaced, the inside of the building has been painted and new flooring and carpeting have been installed. The interior was intentionally renovated to maintain the theater’s 1950’s retro color, material, fabrics and design themes. Renovations were the result of a unique public private partnership between Fauquier County Department of Parks and Recreation and the Fauquier Community Theatre. Renovations were funded through the county, and funds obtained through generous donations from Fauquier Community Theatre patrons and various fundraisers. (left to right): Mike Markley, (FCT Board Chairman), Jonathan Caron, (Jonathan Caron Construction, Inc.), Cathy Silvers (event emcee and star from ‘Happy Days’), Miles Friedman (Fauquier County Economic Development Director), Stephen Heyda (Fauquier Community Theater Board of Directors), & Larry Miller (Director, Fauquier County Department of Parks and Recreation) rededicate the newly renovated Theater on the Green.

Please enjoy our greenways and enhance the user experience by using common sense and common courtesy. General Rules of the Path: Trail/Road Intersections: Trail and Road Intersection safety has been an ongoing challenge for municipalities across the country. The Department is studying the issue and revising standards for our greenways and trails. Automobiles and trail users should use caution when approaching all intersections and obey posted signage. Sharrows Fauquier County Parks and Recreation and the Town of Warrenton now have sharrows installed on Aiken Drive and Walker Drive. Sharrows are bicycle symbols carefully placed to guide bicyclists to the best place to ride on the road. They also serve as a reminder to drivers to share the road with cyclists. Motorists should: • Expect to see bicyclists on the street • Remember to give bicyclists three feet of space when passing • Follow the rules of the road 8 • GOOD TIMES SPRING 2016 • recreation.fauquiercounty.gov

The playground behind the Warrenton Community Center is in the very beginning stages of a facelift that started with the removal of the geo-dome jungle gym and the installment of a new play structure. The playground surface is a first for Fauquier County Parks & Rec, called Pour-In-Place, and is made up of a surface layer of bonded rubber pellets and a sub-layer of bonded, shredded rubber that makes a safe, spongy surface to land on. A master plan is currently being worked on that will help include the recreational needs of the community, Head Start, Senior Center, individuals attending training at the Central Complex, and visitors at the Community Center. The plan will also include a connecting trail to the Warrenton Branch Greenway and to Brumfield Elementary School, along with any future development behind Home Depot. Let’s Go Back In Time!   Step back in time and discover what life on the railroad was all about! The Warrenton Branch Greenway Caboose will be open for tours, every Saturday from 9a-11a, from April to October pending weather conditions.

Swing dancing provides an effective aerobic workout that raises the heart rate and burns calories. It also strengthens bones and builds muscles. Swing dancing is a vigorous aerobic workout that raises your heart rate and can leave you breathless. The average person burns nearly 300 calories per hour swing dancing. Like many other styles of dance, swing dancing is a weight-bearing exercise, which strengthens your bones. Dipping and twirling also help to build muscle density and upper-body strength. In February 2012, Marshall Community Center held its first Swing Dance and now holds dances all year long. Please see page 12 for more information on Spring Dance which will feature a Swing Dance Contest. The music is performed by The Silvertones Swing Band and there is a complimentary lesson at the beginning of every dance.
