Lake Prince Woods to Host Ribbon-Cutting for New Wellness Center

(April 10, 2024) – Lake Prince Woods will host a ribbon-cutting to premiere its new Wellness Center on Thursday, April 18, 2024, at 3:30 pm. The event will begin at the Main Administrative Building at 100 Anna Goode Way. The public is welcome to attend by calling 757.923.5504.

The Wellness Center is made possible by the success of the Mind, Body, Spirit capital campaign, which raised $1,467,047 to update wellness-enhancing amenities and to provide for future memory care enhancements on campus. The groundbreaking for the $13.5 million Wellness Center took place in September of 2022, which commemorated the date of Lake Prince Woods’ original opening in 2002.

Now, a year-and-a-half after the groundbreaking, the completed Wellness Center features:

  • Fitness areas for cardio, strength training, and classes such as yoga and aerobics
  • Art studio and classroom space
  • Additional spaces to gather with the community for bridge, Bible study, book clubs, and more
  • Salon
  • Gift shop

In conjunction with the project, Lake Prince Woods’ Commons area was renovated to integrate the Wellness Center into existing structures and to enhance resident amenities. The Commons now features:

  • An upgraded main auditorium/gathering space with improved audiovisual capabilities
  • A pub-style billiards room and lounge
  • Improved wayfinding signage and increased covered space at the entrance and between buildings

Judy Raymond, Executive Director

In advance of the ribbon-cutting, Lake Prince Woods’ executive director Judy Raymond shared, “The prospect of having a Wellness Center has energized our residents for years, and to be at that point where the dreams are almost reality is beyond satisfying. This new addition to the campus will change the way our community functions. The Wellness Center will serve as a crossroads for our residents, and activities and programs will have a new home where people can gather and socialize with more options and more ease. The Lake Prince lifestyle becomes even more dynamic with its debut.”

Lee Syria, EveryAge president and CEO, also noted, “As the capital campaign confirmed, the intersection of mind, body, and spirit is an essential need for well-being. Through their generous support, residents of Lake Prince Woods and other donors were clear that a Wellness Center is indispensable for quality of life and to undergird the continuum of care that’s already in place. EveryAge wholeheartedly subscribes to well-being through physical activity, social engagement, mental stimulation, and spiritual growth, and we are proud to help make this project possible for Lake Prince Woods.”
