Leggett Proposes Renaming Montgomery Aquatic Center In Honor of Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Sargent Shriver

Montgomery Aquatic Center in North Bethesda in honor of the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Sargent Shriver, longtime residents of Montgomery County. “Naming this world class aquatic center for the Shrivers would appropriately honor the lives and memory of these two remarkable, community-minded individuals,” said Leggett.  “The Shrivers were avid swimmers and were renowned for opening their home and pool to disabled and disadvantaged children for fun and exercise and for Eunice Shriver’s beloved Special Olympics activities.”

As required by County Administrative Procedure 5-19, the County Executive has appointed an Ad Hoc Naming Committee to review this proposal and receive and consider public comments.  Following receipt of any public comment, as well as comments from the County Council, the committee will make a final recommendation to the County Executive.

Public comments should be submitted no later than Friday, May 13, to Kathleen Boucher, Assistant Chief Administrative Officer, Office of the County Executive, 101 Monroe Street, Rockville, MD  20850.  Comments may also be sent via email to
