Lexington Parks & Recreation operates six community centers
in Lexington. Each offers a variety of programs such as aerobics, karate, arts & crafts, safe dances, spring and winter break activities, homework help clubs and much more.
Parks & Recreation also partners with Fayette County Public Schools and a 21st Century grant to operate the 21st Century Community Learning Center at Winburn Middle School. The main focus of the center is to improve academic achievement and to help meet the social, cultural and recreational needs of participating students and their families.

The Tubby Smith Foundation and Parks & Recreation have teamed up to create Tubby’s Klubhouse Computer Education Classrooms in four of Lexington’s Community Centers (Carver, Castlewood, Dunbar and Kenwick). Each 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. Check with each community center for exact dates and times.
The Dell TechKnow program is a partnership with Fayette County Public Schools and several local businesses that use the Tubby’s Klubhouses for special computer education classes that are targeted toward needy middle school students. Classes are held for two nights a week for ten weeks. Students learn how to take a computer apart, put it back together, install hardware and software and learn basic word processing, spreadsheet use, presentation creation, email use and safe internet surfing.
