Welcome to Kanawha Recreation Association
We are a neighborhood recreation facility located in Western Henrico County, Virginia. Kanawha is an association of 550 member families with 4 swimming pools, 9 hard surface tennis courts, 2 backboard courts, a playground, a field, and a picnic pavilion. We have competitive swim and dive teams for children in the summer and competitive tennis teams for all ages throughout the year. Swimming lessons are offered in the summer, and tennis lessons are offered from March through November. On this site you should find information about our many activities, membership opportunities, and employment opportunities. If you have more questions, please contact us.
Our regular schedule is now in full swing (Weekdays 10:AM-9:PM, Saturdays 10:AM-8:PM, and Sundays 11:AM-8:PM, except for July 4 and 5). Information about special events will be coming out frequently. Please check the website often. Also, if you receive at email from KRA News, and the subject line reads "Posts from KRA NEWS - Kanawha Recreation Association for (that day's date)" that is an email that you subscribed for, and we are using those to sent out important information. Unfortunately, we cannot change how the subject lines reads, so please know that a Post from KRA NEWS is important. Also, please remember that anyone under the age of 14 must have a parent or adult (age 18 or older) at the pool with them after 5:PM on weekdays.
Help KRA be BEE-Free
Please remember to pick up all spills, especially of sweetened drinks, candy, ice cream, sweets. The sugar attracts yellow jackets who promptly return to their hive to announce their find. They dance out a road map for their hive-mates (we’re not making this up), and before you know it, KRA is swarming with bees. You can help by picking up after yourselves.
