Built in 1897, Ponsonby Community Centre was initially a school. It was purchased by Auckland City Council in 1958 for use as a hall. The Centre has been rebuilt and completely refurbished since a fire in August 1999.

Since 1990, the Centre has offered expanded services including OSCAR (out of school care & recreation) programmes, subsidised adult education and a pre-school as well as being a venue for hire.
