Colonial Beach Community Center

The Colonial Beach Community Center, located at 717 Marshall Avenue, on the Point, is owned by the Town of Colonial Beach, but managed and maintained by the Foundation. The building was built and originally maintained by the Lions Club.

COVID-19 Precautions

Until further notice, use of the Community Center will be limited to small groups and approved on a case-by-case basis. Anyone who wishes to use the Community Center should be aware of the CDC's Considerations for Events and Gatherings and adhere to any guidance and requirements set forth by the Virginia Department of Health. The Foundation is committed to doing what it can to help control the spread of COVID-19 within our community.

Update

Transition to New Community Center Tabled Indefinitely

In January, the Foundation's Board of Directors met to discuss Foundation initiatives and priorities for 2021; among them, a plan to transition to a new Community Center. However, after consultation with Mayor Robin Schick, the Board decided at its March 9 meeting to indefinitely table that initiative. Therefore, the Colonial Beach Community Foundation will continue to manage the Community Center at its current location at 717 Marshall Avenue. "The Foundation will continue to be the steward of the Community Center and will work with the Town to make sure that Colonial Beach residents are well served by this center and any in the future that might be developed," stated Eric Nelson, President of the Colonial Beach Community Foundation.

The Foundation, with the help of many local volunteers and companies and under the day-to-day management and guidance of Board Member Mitzi Saffos, has revitalized and operated the Colonial Beach Community Center since 2007.

Using the Community Center

The Foundation uses the community center for many of its own events, but also rents it to individuals and other organizations for meetings, events, and celebrations. It has a kitchen, two restrooms inside plus an accessible restroom outside, tables and chairs, an outdoor stage and large field, and ample parking.
