We’re extending operating and programming hours at South Park Community Center

 

Based on community input and in an effort to reduce barriers to utilizing our facilities and services, Seattle Parks and Recreation is extending operating hours at South Park Community Center and extending Teen Late Night Programming.

Extending operating hours:

Seattle Parks and Recreation is extending operating hours on a pilot basis from June to December 2018 at South Park Community Center. Beginning June 3, South Park Community Center will be open on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please see below for the Center’s full operating hours.

South Park Community Center operating hours:

Monday – Thursday, 10 a.m.  – 9 p.m.
Friday, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Extending Late Night programming:

In addition to adding Sunday operating hours, Seattle Parks and Recreation will extend Late Night at South Park Community Center to include Saturday nights, on a pilot basis from June 2 through September 29.

Late Night programming for youth aims to provide at-risk young people a safe place, a healthy meal, and the opportunity to develop life skills. South Park Community Center currently offers Friday Late Night programming for youth, and the program has more than doubled in recent years – from serving an average of 28 youth each week in 2014 to an average of 63 in 2017. Late Night hours will be 7 p.m. to midnight on both Fridays and Saturdays.
