We have competitive swim and dive teams for children in the summer and competitive tennis teams for all ages throughout the year.

On this site you should find information about our many activities, membership opportunities, and employment opportunities. If you have more questions, please contact us.
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.

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.
