Located at the rear of the complex, the Athletics and Activities Center includes a 14,000-square-foot gymnasium, a large multi-use room, and a warming kitchen.  The facility can be converted into a large-scale events space with carpeted floor coverings, state-of-the-art sound, and multi-use seating.

The facility is home to the Goochland County Extension Office and the Monacan Soil and Water Conservation District.  The center includes lab space, a demonstration and programming kitchen, and interactive exhibits highlighting the agricultural resources and services of Goochland County.

The outdoor spaces of the Central Complex include a 1/4-mile walking track, two multi-use fields, and demonstration spaces for the Agricultural Center.

Future amenities will include a playground, nature trail, and pavilion.
