If that question got your attention, then you should register today for Prince George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation’s virtual Community Meeting happening next Monday, October 26th from 6:30-8:00pm! At this meeting, representatives will discuss the feasibility of building a Multigenerational Center in the vicinity of the PG Plaza Metro Station (Service Area 2).
There will also be a virtual Community Meeting on Tuesday, October 27th from 6:30-8pm to discuss the plan for a new Multigenerational Center in Service Area 4 (includes New Carrollton, Cheverly, Landover Hills and portions of Greenbelt, Riverdale Park, Glenarden and other communities).
What’s a Multigenerational Center?
Per PG Parks and Recreation website: “Multigenerational centers range from 60,000 to 80,000 square feet and offer an array of program opportunities to satisfy the needs and interests of an entire family. Each new center is custom-designed to serve the specific needs of neighboring populations. This is a level of service that could not be provided by the former model of small recreation centers that are typically comprised of a single gymnasium, multipurpose space, and a fitness room.
In contrast, typical multigenerational centers will have a double gymnasium, an aquatic feature, a fitness center with a running track, and flexible multipurpose program spaces to meet the requirements for a variety of activities.”

When I saw the SAARC open, I said to myself “man it would be nice if they upgraded the current PG Plaza Community Center into something like this.” Directly across from the new library….potential to be an amazing public amenity space.
You’re a fortune teller, Marcus! 🙂 Yes, how awesome would that be? Multigen center at PG Plaza Community Center site and then a quick, post-workout walk to get some books from the new library!

MNCPPC owns the property that used to be a synagogue on Adelphi Rd, next to the PG Plaza Community Center. Maybe they will put the multigenerational center there.
Hi Kay – I do believe that’s the area they’re looking into for the new Multigen Center. Would be a great spot!
