About

South Park Community Center is in the heart of the small but ethnically diverse neighborhood in southwest Seattle.

Built in the late 1980s, the facility is a modern adobe-style building with a vaulted ceiling in the lobby and several large windows that look out onto a medium-sized playfield. The lobby area has both a meeting/study area and a lounge area furnished with soft leather chairs and a television. Other interior spaces include a child care room, a computer lab, a newly redesigned teen room, a medium-sized multipurpose room with a mirrored wall, and a full-size gym. Adjacent to the building outside is the playfield with two baseball diamonds and two soccer goals. There is also a wading pool, tennis court, basketball court and small play area.

South Park Community Center is very community oriented, hosting several popular annual community events. Among them are Winterfest, Haunted South Park (Halloween), Field Day and the Spring Egg Hunt. South Park also hosts an annual Teen Film Festival. The center offers a wide array of programs and classes for all ages including the Community Kitchen program that brings people together to prepare and share healthy food; before- and after-school programs; summer day camp; Teen Late Night; toddler indoor gym; tai chi; basketball; volleyball; yoga; Zumba; and more.

As part of the projects we are collecting inspiring quotations from community members to be used as part of an onsite art installation. We're looking for examples of quotations from artists, authors, local leaders - anyone whose voice reflects and celebrates South Park's diverse, vibrant community.

Pickleball Conversion Pilot

Seattle Parks and Recreation's Planning and Development Division lead a pilot project to implement lining of multiple tennis court sites for pickleball. The sites were lined for shared use by both pickleball and tennis players. There were no changes made to the tennis nets. The tennis court sites were selected based on demand for more pickleball and the following feasibility criteria: accessibility, current court use, existing court conditions, and equitable distribution.

The following courts were lined for pickleball:

  • Delridge Community Center in southwest district 
  • Walt Hundley Playfield in southeast district
  • Discovery Park Court in central-west district
  • Georgetown Playfield in south-central district 
  • Green Lake Park in central-north district  
  • Miller Community Center in central-east district 
  • Soundview Playfield in northwest district
  • South Park Community Center in southwest district
