Seattle Parks and Recreation needs input for South Lake Union Community Center

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is excited to work with the community on planning for a new community center in the South Lake Union neighborhood. Located at the corner of Mercer Street and Dexter Ave., the center will be a private-public partnership operated by SPR, but located on the ground floor of a private development project. The new center will be a welcoming space for all and visible from the street with easy access for pedestrians, cyclists and people traveling by mass transit.

SPR and the design team from NBBJ needs your input to help create a successful center for all. Please visit the Online Open House from January 28 through February 18 at

This Online Open House is an opportunity for the community to share priorities for the center’s activities and programming. The community can also learn more about the project, as well as the constraints and opportunities. Key features of the center include a full-size basketball court, fitness area, and childcare. The community will be asked to share additional recreation priorities to help the design team determine what activities and programs should be included in the new facility and design the layout of the spaces within the community center.
