Community Center

The Kenwick Community Center at 313 Owsley Avenue is run by the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government Division of Parks & Recreation.  The building that is now the Kenwick Center was originally the Kenwick Church of the Nazarene in 1930. The building stayed a historical part of the neighborhood, even after the congregation moved out. The city of Lexington took over the property and now the Kenwick Center is one of six community centers operated by Parks & Recreation.

The Kenwick center offers a variety of programs including after school programs, aerobics, karate, arts & crafts, safe dances, spring and winter break activities, homework help clubs and computer access through Tubby‘s Klubhouse, and summer day camps. The Tubby Smith Foundation and the Division of Parks and Recreation have teamed up to create Tubby‘s Klubhouse Computer Education Classrooms in four of Lexington‘s community centers, one of which is the Kenwick Center. The center features computer workstations with high-speed internet access for public use. Computer classes are offered to elementary, middle and high school students along with adults and senior citizens.

The Kenwick Neighborhood Association holds our general meetings at this location every other month. Visit Parks and Recreation of Lexington, KY for more information about the center, its hours and activity schedule.
