Throughout the school year, we have several Friday night events, including movie nights, spa nights, 1950s ice cream socials and more.

The Gym

What an accomplishment! It’s been a decade since a group of middle schoolers submitted a petition to the Lagunitas School Board requesting a gym. Years of planning, extraordinary fundraising and thousands of hours of volunteerism have created this amazing new Gym and Youth Center at the heart of our Valley!

The building is owned by the Lagunitas School District, and via a unique “joint use” agreement and is managed by the Community Center during non-school hours. After school and on weekends the gym is filled with adult and youth athletic events as well as dance and yoga classes, performances, community events, and more.
