The Joyce E. Hanks Community Center, 4575 Lake Road, is named after a former city council member, and has become a hub of activity. One might find classes including yoga, cooking, or CPR. Boy and Girl Scouts meet at the center along with 12 Step programs, knitting and painting groups and an active senior citizen group.

Behind the center is a landscaped gazebo, seating, grill, picnic tables and playground equipment so residents can enjoy the awesome beauty of Lake Erie. Sunset are particularly stunning.
