Kittery Recreation Center to be Demolished

Kittery Recreation Center to be Demolished
March 5, 2024

The former town recreation center building will be demolished to create more open space for Emery Field users.

The town is seeking to hire a contractor to raze and dispose of the vacated 45 Woodlawn Ave. building.

Kittery moved all of its relevant recreation programming from the building to the Kittery Community Center, the former Frank C. Frisbee Elementary School, on Rogers Road in 2012, and the Woodlawn Avenue structure has been minimally used ever since.

Once the building is demolished and removed, the parcel will be kept open for the Emery Field park area, according to Town Manager Kendra Amaral.

No new building is being erected in its place.
