Lafayette Community Center

500 St Marys Rd, Lafayette, CA 94549, United States


Lafayette Community Center is a great location to exercise. It has a lot of shades and beautiful scenery.  Plus, the rest of the facility is great for family activities.

In 1983 the City acquired the Community Center from the board of Lafayette High School. This was a former primary school in Burton. The Community Center has 10 rooms that are of varying sizes and are used for a variety of recreational purposes. Examples cover courses, social gatherings, seminars, and meetings for all ages. Any of the rooms may be reserved on the weekends by the general public.

The primary aim of the Community Center is to house ongoing services and meetings within the City. We depend on one-time tenants to leave the facilities clean and without disruption to the other customers of the facilities that would follow.

Rental policies and guidelines have been established to remind us of the safety and upkeep of the Community Center. As a municipally run property, we have taken careful care to ensure that no lawsuits are made against the City that might result in the Community Center losing any of the City's managed services.
