Delridge Community Center expanding hours, days

(Seattle Parks photo)

Right now, Delridge Community Center is open Mondays-Fridays, 9:30 am-6:30 pm. The city announced today that its hours will expand starting Monday, September 11th, to Mondays-Fridays, 9:30 am-9 pm, plus Saturdays, 9:30 am-6 pm. It’s one of eight community centers around the city that will get added hours with Seattle Park District funding; it’s one of West Seattle’s only two city-run community centers currently in operation, as Hiawatha CC is closed for eventual renovation and Alki CC has only been in use for child care.

    Curious now – Who runs high point cc, if not the city?

      It does. As I noted, Delridge is one of only two city-run community centers now in operation. (The other is High Point.)

    Wasn’t Hiawatha’s eventual renovation to have been completed last year? The city still hasn’t done squat to start that (pre-funded) capital project in the three years the center has been closed to the public. I feel especially angry for the parents with kids who’ve been deprived of the pre-school and after-school programs that were Hiawatha’s biggest source of community income before it closed.

    I am truly amazed and pleasantly surprised at how many people of all ages and activities use Delridge and High Point CC. Staff at both places are always so pleasant and helpful! Thank you Seattle Park Dept!!!

      I have a stack of things I’ve asked various public agencies about this week and LPSouth is one of them. They haven’t awarded the contract yet though bidding ended in mid-June (for the bundled LP South and Westcrest Park). They still swear the hope is to start construction in “late summer” but they don’t know until contract is finalized whether LP or Westcrest will be first.

Sorry, comment time is over.
