FRIDAY NIGHT: Open House and Family Game Night at the Magnuson Community Center

Seattle's Magnuson Park Community Center

Seattle City Councilmembers Maritza Rivera and Joy Hollingsworth, along with King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski and Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) Superintendent AP Diaz, are inviting the community to an open house and family game night tonight at Magnuson Community Center.  

Together, they’re bringing over $10,000 of newly offered summer program opportunities to District 4 families. 

“The Seattle Parks and Recreation programming is so important for families, particularly in the summer months when kids are out of school,” said Seattle City Councilmember Rivera (District 4). “Today’s event is a great example of what can happen when the city, the county and the private sector collaborate. I am grateful to my colleague King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski for providing this new funding for scholarships and reduced fees for families who need financial assistance. And thank you to Superintendent Diaz for all his work on behalf of D4 families, particularly those at Magnuson Park.” 

King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski said, “Thank you to Councilmember Rivera and our program providers for coming together so quickly to offer space in their programs. I’m happy to be able to provide funding from the County’s Youth and Amateur Sports fund to support eligible families and kids with summer programs and activities.”

The following organizations will be at the Magnuson Community Center to share program information: 

  • Arena Sports 
  • Associated Recreation Council (ARC), which organizes activity camps throughout the summer
  • Broadway Bound Children’s Theater 
  • Magnuson Athletic Club 
  • Sail Sand Point 
  • Sand Point Arts and Cultural Exchange (SPACE) 

“I want to thank the community organizations at Magnuson Park for providing recreational opportunities which allow more families and kids to have a fun, safe summer,” said Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) Superintendent AP Diaz. “And, a huge thanks to our SPR staff at Magnuson Community Center for the work they do. We have a great team who shine brightly on our community each and every day!”

“I am proud of SPR for organizing this event, and bringing so many program providers together so quickly,” said Councilmember Hollingsworth (District 3), who chairs the Parks, Public Utilities & Technology committee. “This is a great evening that will lead to a great summer.”
