WATCH: Art Attack at Lubber Run

Published on July 19, 2018

Arlingtonians got "artrageous" at the Lubber Run Community Center last week, in a creative way to say goodbye to the 1950s facility before it is demolished to make way for a new 21st century community center. With paint bombs, life-size silhouette painting, a group mural, cardboard construction activities, and postcard-writing, dozens of community members put their mark on the County's first planned community center. The center closed to the public on July 6.

The new center will continue to provide programs for youth, adults, seniors and preschoolers, and multi-purpose rooms for recreation programming and community use, and will include a senior center, gymnasium, fitness center and small track. It also will house about 70 Department of Parks and Recreation employees and provide one level of structured parking. The building design optimizes the site's green space and preserves as many existing trees as possible.
