History and Current Programs

Lauri Ann West Community Center enriches lives and strengthens the community by providing a welcoming place for community engagement. The Center delivers a high-quality fitness facility along with dynamic and unique cultural, educational and recreational classes, camps, workshops and memorable special events. The friendly atmosphere and revitalization of the facilities provide an inviting community gathering place.  Located at 1220 Powers Run Road on an eleven acre park-like setting in the Township of O’Hara, Pennsylvania, the Lauri Ann West Community Center was founded in 1982 by a group of dedicated citizens who sought to keep the former elementary school open as a community resource.  The Lauri Ann West Community Center serves the six municipalities that comprise the Fox Chapel Area School District — Aspinwall, Blawnox, Fox Chapel, Indiana Township, O’Hara and Sharpsburg, as well as the surrounding areas.
