    Has there been any information released about opening up this facility to the public again? It’s a publicly funded site and should be reopened now that the vaccination site is closing. There are many people who need this facility for daily exercise and activity.

      Unfortunately, anything governed by the city or county will likely be the LAST things to open up.  I’m still waiting for community centers in High Point and Delridge to open, as well.

        SWAC is not a city facility. It’s owned and operated by Seattle Public Schools. The city does own/operate West Seattle Stadium, which I believe has been long since reopened for walkers/runners/etc.

          Yes. So nice of them to open the track for the well heeled in fancy West Seattle while those of down here in the southern “WS ghetto” of Delridge/White Center/Highland Park are locked out of the beautiful new field our property taxes likely paid for. Thanks SPS!

          Oh ok, thnx for the clarification. If you (WSB) have or receive any info in community centers, please let us know. I saw the updates on spray parks/wading pools. If there’s a staff shortage, I can see many CCs not opening back up or having reduced hours/services

    I’ve been told they are making a decision at the end of the school year , the stadium has been closed during the day because of students returning and after school for student athletes..

Sorry, comment time is over.
