Arlington County has announced that they have received a generous $10 million dollar donation from Boeing. This donation will improve and expand Long Bridge Park, including the planned Aquatics and Fitness center.
“This creative and generous investment by Boeing offers a real win for our community,” said Arlington County Chair Christian Dorsey. “It not only helps provide financial support for our new facility, but also establishes a special opportunity to give back to an important group — our active-duty military families serving in the region.”
Arlington County plans to name one of the park’s fields as “Boeing Field.” Boeing will also name the 50-meter pool inside the future Aquatics & Fitness Center. The Aquatics & Fitness Center is expected to open to the public in winter 2021.
“We are proud that Boeing has selected the Arlington Community Foundation as its partner in making this investment in Arlington County and supporting the many military families that call Arlington home,” said Jennifer Owens, President & CEO of the Arlington Community Foundation. “Helping generous companies like Boeing actively engage in their community is a central part of our philanthropic mission.”
