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.

Pickleball Conversion Pilot

Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Planning and Development Division is leading a pilot project to implement lining of multiple tennis court sites for pickleball. The sites will be lined for shared use by both pickleball and tennis players. There will be 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 are potential courts recommended for pickleball:

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

Seattle Parks and Recreation will be gathering comments through Sept. 5, 2017. For questions or to comment on this pilot project please email
