Ready to ‘ramp back up’ Town schedule

After a very unusual and difficult 2020, it looks like the Town’s scheduled activities and events are starting to ramp back up and are getting back to normal.

What was once a church is now the Farragut Community Center and the West Knox County Senior Center, located at 239 Jamestowne Blvd. During the pandemic, the Community Center was open with limited activities and the gym was closed due to flooring issues. The flooring issues have been resolved and the gym is now open for use. New activities are being scheduled and the gym is available for basketball, pickleball, volleyball and much more. All classes held at the Community Center require a free membership and class fees vary. Farragut residency is not required for membership. To find out more, go to farragutparksandrec.org. I might also add that after being closed for about a year, the West Knox County Senior Center re-opened as of April 5 with its regularly scheduled hours.

Rental space at the Community Center includes two classrooms, a middle school-sized gymnasium with a stage and the Assembly Hall – an event venue that includes a pre-function area and a catering kitchen. Groups are now starting to reserve space for events, so now is the time to plan future gatherings.
