John Chavis Community Center Memory Lane Tours

Join us in celebrating the life and legacy of the original John Chavis Community Center with a final farewell walking tour of the facility.

Take a trip down Chavis’ memory lane visiting various rooms throughout the building displaying memorabilia and souvenirs highlighting a few examples of the people, programs, and activities that helped make John Chavis Memorial Park the place to learn and play from the 1930s to today!
