Updated: November 22, 2022

Fall 2022

Seattle Parks and Recreation is in the final stages of permitting this project. We anticipate the community center stabilization work, and the playfield renovation will be in construction by spring 2023. The community center will be closed for approximately 12 months during construction.

We thank everyone who participated in the Online Open House on February 24, 2021. You can view the video, presentation, and meeting notes from the Open House below. 

Community Center Stabilization Work

Construction for this project will occur at the same time as the South Park Community Center Site Redevelopment Project.

South Park Community Center was identified in the 2016 Community Center Strategic plan for a major maintenance project focused on extending the life of the facility and increasing programming potential. A preliminary scope of the project is outlined below. The final scope is expected to be refined throughout the design process based on more information about cost and needs. Seattle Parks and Recreation planning staff are meeting with the community center staff to review the scope and schedule.
