The Ensley Community Center is a community center in Ensley Park which replaced the 1942 Ensley Community House after the a 6-acre portion of the park on which it stood was sold to the Alabama Highway Department for the construction of I-59.

The 1965 building was designed by architect Felton Collier and constructed, for $130,000, by J. F. Holley Construction. Two baseball fields and a group of tennis courts were also reconstructed in the park.
