The Town of Warrenton opened the Warrenton Aquatic and Recreation Facility (WARF) in September 2007 as a response to the growing recreational needs of its population of families, active adults and seniors. The WARF is a 59,738 square foot building featuring an 11 lane, 25 yard-by-25 meter, 364,000 gallon indoor competition pool; a 3,600 gallon therapeutic spa and a 68,000 gallon leisure pool with a water slide, lazy river, vortex and a zero depth entry for easy entrance by toddlers, seniors and those in wheel chairs. The WARF also has a 3,200 square foot fitness room equipped with upright and recumbent cycles, treadmills, elliptical trainers, circuit training gear and free weights. Fitness classes for those of all abilities are held in the WARF's multi-purpose room.
The park area surrounding the WARF (the Warrenton Sports Complex) features seven rectangular playing fields, paved hiking paths (click here for Trail Map), an inline skating rink and skate park, and the Claude Moore Fun For All Playground. The Claude Moore Fun For All Playground was constructed for all children, with particular focus on accessibility for children with disabilities. The park is designed to help all children with physical, social and psychological development and provides a place where children of differing abilities and their families can come together and have fun.
