About Us

A variety of activities take place at Parker Bennett Community Center, including camps for children when they are not in school and different community events. Parker Bennett Community Center offers a Before School Program during colder months to provide children with a warm, safe environment while waiting for the buses. In addition, the Community Center offers an Afterschool Program throughout the school year where children can get help with homework, take part in arts and crafts activities while socializing with friends.

The Community Center is not without an outdoor space and features a playground, basketball courts, a multi-use court, and a picnic shelter.

All hours are subject to change without notice.
Please note the Parker Bennett Community Center is closed during the months of June-July for the annual Camp Good Times.
