Onawa Community Center

 Onawa Community and Recreation Center opened its doors to the public on January 2nd, 2003. The project was made possible by the generous donations and endless support from the local community, state and local grants, municipal electric utility and the City of Onawa.

The center has a community hall able to seat just over 400 people with full kitchen facilities, a projector and ceiling mounted screen, and a smaller room that can be divided off.  We also have an executive boardroom with overhead TV and visual media equipment, a fully equipped exercise room, and a room soon to be converted into a senior citizen center. For rental information contact the Community Center, at 712.433.2201 or ocrc@onawa.com. Click below for the rental agreement.

We invite everyone to stop by the facility for a tour or to ask any questions you may have. We look forward to serving the needs of the community and surrounding areas.
