Jefferson Community Center is in the heart of Seattle's Beacon Hill neighborhood just minutes from downtown in the recently expanded and renovated Jefferson Park. This destination park boasts a large play area, spraypark, zip lines, tennis courts, skate park, cricket pitch, sportsfields, lawn bowling green, the oldest golf course in Seattle and a great ¾-mile walking path. Nearby is a fire station, Mercer Middle School and Seattle Parks and Recreation horticulture buildings.

Originally built in the 1930s, the community center is a hodgepodge of various renovations and additions built in subsequent decades. Jefferson is a three-story building with two preschool rooms upstairs and a music room. The main floor has Hasselberg Hall, a pottery room, meeting room, social area, and a gym. A teen room and maintenance area are downstairs.

In addition to a wide variety of programs for kids, teens, seniors and others, Jefferson is the only center to have a Mock Trial team. The team has been successful in competition by reaching the state competition the last three years.
