About the Center
The Neighborhood Center (located at 8201 10th Ave S) is in the old brick fire house that was built in the 1920’s. Inside you can still see the lockers that the firemen used for their gear. The Neighborhood Center is an active building bursting at the seams with dedicated volunteers who are working to improve our community and give our neighbors a helping hand. In 2011 we clocked over 13 thousand volunteer hours! We have an average of one thousand neighbors visiting the Center every week.
If you would like to reserve the Neighborhood Center for a community event, Contact Us for information.

South Park Senior Program
The South Park Senior Program serves those 55 and older who live in King County (serving over 100 different elders per year). The Senior Program includes evening meals on Mondays and Fridays, Enhance-Fitness exercises twice a week, cards, and a crafts program. 85% of the participants have very low incomes.
I, Hao, am 75-years-old, Vietnamese, in the USA 17 months after 7 years in a communist jail. I lived alone, felt isolated and wanted to go home. Then, I learned about the South Park Senior Program. Now, I come to the Center twice a week for exercise and dinners plus breakfasts five days a week. I practice English, teach Vietnamese, eat nutritious food, share my feelings and learn about others. Now, I want to stay and bring my wife to join me so we can build a new life in the South Park area. — To read Hao’s complete story, click here

Environmental Coalition of South Seattle
ECOSS was created by South Park community members to facilitate working partnerships among different, and often conflicting, segments of the community – residents, businesses, industry, and government. The aim was to bring these groups together to address environmental and developmental needs of the community. To this day, ECOSS acts on this vision, providing leadership and serving as a voice for communities around Puget Sound.
