Southwest Community Center

“It’s no wonder why Southwest Community Center is a highly-valued resource or Portland parents. This community center has an indoor swimming pool,  rock-climbing wall, gym complete with basketball courts, fitness center and group exercise studio, wireless Internet and rent-able party rooms. The center also offers the fabulous Sprout Academy (a “green” preschool for kids ages 2-4) and a Drop-In Childcare program.

The Center is such a fantastic resource for Portland-area families offering fun seasonal events, camps for youth ages 2-15, as well as party space rentals and packages for those special little birthday boys and girls.

The pool is an obvious draw for the Center, with a 120 foot waterslide, rope swing, and interactive water play features. Enjoy Family Swim times every day of the week, and Open Play Swims Monday, Wednesday, and Friday-Sunday. Concerned about your tot’s swim skills? The center has swimming lessons, too!

With all the reasons to visit the Southwest Community Center, you’ll be grateful for their Active Pass and punch card systems, which allow easy access for frequent Center users.  For those families who simply want to drop in from time to time, opt for the Center’s convenient daily admission. All are welcome at the Southwest Community Center so, round up the rugrats and make everyone’s day with a trip to this neighborhood gem!”
