Community Centers among facilities closed today for furlough

Jefferson Community Center and Van Asselt Community Center, along with the rest of Seattle Parks and Recreation’s community centers and indoor pools, will be closed today for furlough. Other facilities such as the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center and the Amy Yee Tennis Center will also be closed (fully or partially).

City employees will take 10 days of unpaid furlough this year as the result of budget cuts. To achieve this, Parks and Recreation will close most facilities one Friday a month, except in July and August. A complete list of closures may be found on the Parks and Recreation website.
