The Kennebunk Beach Improvement Association is a summer recreational and enrichment program for children ages 2 to 17. Now in its 114th year, KBIA is located at Mother’s Beach and offers more than 50 classes at its picturesque waterfront property, uniquely situated between the beach and the Cove at Lord’s Point.

Whether your family has spent summers here for years, or you are checking us out for the first time, we encourage everyone to experience summer here at KBIA – the way summer should be!

Important News

We will rebuild the playground!
Deemed unsalvageable by three separate playground inspectors, all current playground equipment will be coming down in the next week. It’s been an extremely complicated decision by our board, guided by national to local experts in various areas, and we are moving forward with design, approval and installation of playground equipment for Summer 2025.
For Summer 2024, we will install a new set of swings and add some temporary equipment to the space – a climbing structure with a slide, a playhouse, and a frame for a sandbox. All these pieces, with the exception of the swings, can be removed at the close of this season. The Board will continue to develop a fully redesigned playground plan that can be integrated with the inground work needed and potentially have pieces that we can remove every winter. The new playground design, still under construction, will be installed for the 2025 summer.
Playground is closed indefinitely

Due to damage beyond repair sustained in back-to-back storms Jan. 10 and Jan. 13, 2024, the KBIA playground at Mother’s Beach is closed to the public. Our playground remains closed because the structures are unsafe for anyone of any age to use. All equipment will be removed before the end of May. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.
