Good News for Community Centers in 2012

The Seattle Parks and Recreation Department has found a way to keep all of the City’s community centers open next year, even as city budgets grow ever-tighter.

According to KOMO News, “Parks and Rec says operating budgets will be reduced while still providing key programs. Starting in January, the city’s community centers will be grouped into five geographic areas, each including five centers. This will allow Parks and Rec to manage and provide ‘coordinated’ programs among the centers.”

That means our surrounding northeast Seattle community centers will be grouped as follows:

Northeast Tier Community Centers
• Meadowbrook
• Northgate
• Ravenna-Eckstein
• Laurelhurst
• Magnuson

You can find more information about the groupings, new hours and other plans on the Parks and Rec website.
