A local nonprofit that aims to boost Culpeper’s health and wellbeing will be working in a bigger, better space by the end of this year.
Culpeper Wellness Foundation announced in a release Friday that they will be moving to 19000-19026 Crossroad Parkway, directly across from the Department of Motor Vehicles, just off Lovers Lane, south of Route 29.
The building will also be the new site of Culpeper Sport & Fitness, managed by the local association, which is currently a few blocks away on Industrial Drive.
A 7,200-square-foot warehouse in the new building will be renovated to offer new and expanded activities designed to engage local youth. Offices will be remodeled for the foundation’s use as well.
A 14,000-square-foot multi-purpose gymnasium will be added there, the foundation announced, thanks to the support of local donors.
“The gymnasium will complement fitness programming and provide much-needed space for recreational use,” the news release stated.
“We envision a place where youth can be found playing pick-up basketball or volleyball or soccer, where local teams practice and recreational teams are formed,” said Foundation President Shari Landry in a statement.
She added that future programming will also focus on activities that will bring families together and programs that encourage all children to enjoy active play.
