Fort Washington Community Center Nearly Ready To Open
The Fort Washington Forest Community Center, which had sat unfinished for several years because of a contract dispute, is finally nearing completion. Prince George’s County Parks and Recreation Department Senior Planner Don Herring wrote in a Sept. 6 email, “The contractor is in the process of completing interior finish work, and has minor landscaping items to address. We expect to start staff move-in and furniture installation on September 30th. Staff will announce a facility opening date, once this activity has been completed.” The 22,000-square-foot facility is attached to Fort Washington Forest Elementary School, across Indian Head Highway from Piscataway Hills. It includes a gym, community meeting rooms, and other facilities.
