Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center to Reopen to Youth

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, located at 314 Donnally Street, will reopen to youth in kindergarten through 12th grade Monday, April 19 at 1 p.m. Hours will be Monday through Fridays from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. for grades K-12 and Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. for grades 9-12.


“Out of an abundance of caution, we limited access to our community centers and focused on e-learning and after-school programming to continue to help our kids succeed,” said Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin. “We are now opening the MLK Center to all activities for our youth.”


Updated registration forms will be required for all kids entering the MLK Center. COVID-19 protocols will be in place for all those entering the buildings including mandatory masks and temperature checks. All backpacks will also be subject to checks when entering the building.
