Magnolia Community Center Stabilization

Updated: October 12, 2017

Magnolia Community Center Stabilization Work

Magnolia Community Center was identified in the 2016 Community Center Strategic plan for a major maintenance project focused on extending the life of the facility and increasing programming potential. A preliminary scope of the project is outlined below.  The final scope is expected to be refined throughout the design process based on more information about cost and needs.  Seattle Parks and Recreation planning staff are meeting with the community center Advisory Council to review the scope and schedule.

Internal Improvements

  • Lift installed between gym and lobby
  • Lobby remodel
  • Electrical improvements
  • Accessibility improvements
  • Building safety improvements
  • Kitchen remodel
  • Main floor restroom remodel
  • Pottery room repairs
  • Gym, multi-purpose room, and hallway floor repairs

Exterior Improvements

  • Roof replacement
  • Window replacement


While we expect this work to close the center for a short time, a priority of the project will be to minimize the impact to programming.  We will post the construction schedule at the community center at least one month ahead of time.

Planning: Spring - Winter 2017

Design: Winter 2017 - Spring 2019

Construction to take place at some point between Summer 2019 and Spring 2020
