Lovettsville Community Center
About the Center
For more than 40 years we have been providing recreational activities for the Lovettsville community and surrounding areas. Our facility includes a large community center with a full-sized gymnasium, classrooms, a commercial kitchen, and a meeting room. Outdoor amenities include a pool that is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, two lighted tennis courts, a large playground with swings and seating, a baseball field, a basketball court and a memorial garden.
We offer three state- licensed programs that serve more than 200 families every day: Preschool, Child care services as well as hosting CASA, which is an after-school program serving the children of Lovettsville Elementary School in grades 1-5. Registration for our preschool program (ages 3-5) begins in February for the fall and the child care (ages 3-6) runs year round. These classes use learning centers to teach socialization and academic skills with no more than a 10-1 ratio.
We specialize in family events and some of the many during the year include Independence Day festivities (celebrated on July 3rd), Trunk or Treat, the Annual Egg Hunt, Daddy Daughter Dance, Lego-mania, Snowflake Ball, and special dinners like Oktoberfest and the Pancake Supper.
The Lovettsville Pool is located behind the community center and offers many amenities including summer swim lessons, water aerobics and rentals for get- togethers and birthday parties. Some of our favorite summer pool events are National Night Out, Cardboard Boat Regatta, Family Luau and the Dog Swim.
Our community center offers many classes for all ages, interests, and abilities. Activities for children include fun courses in Art, Soccer, Gymnastics, Crafts, Dodgeball, Cooking, Exercise and Lego/ Computer gaming instruction and more. For adults we have a multi-faceted exercise program for every fitness level including Zumba, Yoga, and several different cardio and strength classes for both adults and seniors.
For the seniors in our area, we have seasonal trips, senior lunches with home-made menus and time for socializing and classes like Zumba Gold for the fitness-minded 55 and better.
The Lovettsville Community Center Advisory Board is an important support group for us, providing sponsorship for several special events and many volunteer hours to help with important fundraisers. The proceeds from those provide extra equipment, supplies and preschool scholarships, enhancing all recreational experiences for our community.
We hope you will visit us here at the Lovettsville Community Center. For more information on programs, please call 540-822-5284.

Lovettsville Community Center Advisory Board
The Lovettsville Community Center Advisory Board (LCCAB) is a group of local volunteers working in tandem with the Lovettsville Community Center staff. The LCCAB sponsors several special events, such as the annual Independence Day celebration and Preschool Art Show and Silent Auction. Proceeds from these and other fund raisers provide extra equipment, supplies and scholarships.
LCCAB is also spearheading "Pennies for the Park" to raise money for developing the new Lovettsville Community Park. This 92-acre active and passive recreational park is directly across from the Community Center. For more information, call 540-822-5284.
