Welcome to the Fenway Community Center!
We’re at the intersection of Boylston and Jersey Street. Notice our floor to ceiling windows.
Our “living room” includes comfortable seating, typewriters (thanks to The Type Bar, one of our monthly programs), and 17 board games.
When you hang up your coat, we have both numbered hangers (so you can easily find YOUR jacket in the winter!) and hooks. These hooks ensure people in wheelchairs and also children can reach.
We have two 24 inch iMacs, as well as very fast Wifi.
Small tables are great for board games, and we also have a total of 60 chairs, including 10 with arms (easy for seniors to get in and out of).
We have a full kitchen, including induction stove, Vitamix, KitchenAid mixers and food processors. We also have a number of kitchen tools and baking supplies (not shown).
Our high efficiency dishwasher is environmentally friendly (our building is LEED Gold certified). Our microwave doubles as a convection oven. When booking our space, you also have full use of our kitchen. Our backsplash features subway tile. Around our Carrara marble table, you will find 4 electrical outlets. This table is a great place for impromptu meetings and working sessions.
Note the rolling whiteboard doors close off the kitchen and provide a great backdrop to the table, which can also be used for cooking demonstrations.
We have eight surround sound speakers controlled via a wall panel, a drop down projector and a 70-inch flatscreen that can be hidden out of view by rolling barn doors. Everything in our center is multi-use, and so the doors are also a tackboard surface.
Four meeting tables on casters provide flexibility. They also flip and nest to be hidden out of the way as needed. These room dividers are made from recycled plastic bottles. They zip off as needed for privacy. Finally, these dividers are also a tackboard surface.
Our air wall divides the space in two, and includes three full whiteboard panels. Our floors are real wood, 2.5 inch thick per tile. They were sustainably harvested.
We have 11 yoga mats, 14 yoga straps, and 14 yoga blocks, along with non-toxic yoga mat cleaner. We also have 14 sets of resistance band kits (ranging in resistance from 2-30 lbs). The bench above the board games provides additional seating options. In the cabinets under the bench seating, we have children’s toys (wooden trains etc), basic art supplies and a variety of books.
More shots of the Center. The back wall (along with some of the front side walls) are used for art gallery shows. Art changes every three months.
Here are action shots of our Center in different configurations. Also notice the wall space for art in the front room.
In shot one, Boston Conservatory musicians play. In shot two, members warm up for their Pilates class. In shot three, Fenway News hosted a presentation about Boston’s infrastructure from Northeastern’s Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy.
