Seattle Parks and Recreation Seeks Input on South Lake Union Community Center Design Concepts

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. Please visit the Online Open House from March 11 through March 31, 2021 and join us at the Online Meeting on March 16, 2021 at noon. Both events can be found at Please participate to learn more about this project, meet the design team and provide feedback on the design concepts for the new South Lake Union Community Center.

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 created the layout with input gathered from the first Online Open House held earlier this year. Your input will further help the design team create a successful center for all.

Key features of the center include a full-size basketball court, fitness area/multi-purpose room, and childcare. The community will be asked to share additional recreation priorities to help the design team design the look and feel of the spaces within the community center.
