Kenan Arena Celebrates Completion of New Soccer Turf Installation and Annex Renovation Projects

An official "kick off" was held on January 27, 2011 to celebrate the completion of two arena upgrade projects that had been years in planning and fundraising efforts. A new soccer turf was installed during the month of December with a thicker, more grass-like turf, the original turf having been installed in the early 1990s. In addition, the Annex, which had been previously divided into classrooms, was gutted during the summer of 2010 and, through generous funding, was restored as an additional recreational/event space and is currently being used for the winter soccer program. Additional amenities are planned for the Annex which will require continued fundraising. The Kenan Center is indebted to all the players and volunteers who raised a significant portion of the funds needed to replace the old turf through annual candy sales, as well as community funders including the Grigg-Lewis Foundation, Kenan Arts Council, Lockport Lions Club, and the Rotary Club of Lockport.




New Additions to the Annex! After a lot of hard work in raising the needed funds--including a raffle of a signed Ryan Miller Sabres jersey--new plexiglass has been installed in the Arena Annex. Heating units were also installed, so winter play and activities will be much more comfortable!






Home of One of the Largest Youth Soccer Programs in Western New York!

Along with one of the largest indoor youth soccer programs in the Buffalo Niagara region, the Kenan Center offers a variety of team sport activities to children and adults year round. Youth soccer and soccer clinics, lacrosse, adult soccer, volleyball, and pickleball are just a few of the programs available. The Wings Roller Hockey League also hosts roller hockey clinics at the Kenan Center Arena, and it is the site of numerous large public events including the annual 100 American Craftsmen show, kickboxing championships, the Exchange Club Circus, and the Kenan Quilters' Guild biennial Quilt Show.



Kenan Center Arena

The Kenan Arena, built in 1969, is a modern, multi-use facility that houses the Kenan sports and recreation department, and also provides exhibition space for special events such as the Quilters’ Guild Bi-Annual Quilt Show and the Kenan Center’s 100 American Craftsmen show, which has been held annually since 1971, and attracts more than 5,000 visitors to the Kenan Center campus.
