After almost two years of construction, the brand new Rainier Beach Community Center and Pool, 8825 Rainier Ave. S, will open to the public at a celebration on Sunday, September 22 from 2 to 5 p.m.
Parks invites community members to take tours of the new building, enjoy a free swim in the new pool, hear a performance by the Southeast Youth Orchestra, register for fall programs, enjoy light refreshments, and have some family fun. People can also meet Parks and Recreation’s partners at the new center: Associated Recreation Council, Atlantic Street Center, Bike Works, Campana Quetzal, East African Community Services and Southeast Seattle Community Youth Orchestra.
The new Rainier Beach Community Center and Pool are funded by revenues from General Obligation Bonds and real estate excise tax revenues.
Parks works in partnership with the Associated Recreation Council (ARC) to bring high-quality, accessible and affordable recreation opportunities to the people of Seattle. For more information on ARC, please see http://www.arcseattle.org/.
