Announcement of the city of Puyallup.
Beginning Monday, March 14, 2022, the Puyallup Recreation Center, located at 808 Valley Ave NW, will be closed for repairs and renovations to exterior walls and roofing. While the Recreation Center is closed, programs and activities will still be offered. Program registrations as well as park shelter reservations and facility bookings will continue to be available online at www.puyallupparksandrec.com. Staff will be available for in-person assistance from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Puyallup City Public Works Building. The public works building is located at 1102 39th Ave SE in Puyallup. Customers can visit us in person at this temporary location or call 253-841-5457. We estimate that the leisure center will open in late September or early October. We appreciate the community’s support and patience as we complete these important repairs to the Centre.
Closure Details: In March 2021, it was determined that the exterior walls and roof of the Puyallup Recreation Center were in need of repairs and replacement due to extensive damage. If repairs did not progress, the building would continue to deteriorate. Starting in March, the following repairs and renovations will be made to the building.
- Repair and replacement of exterior walls
- New paint for exterior walls
- Re-roofing of racquetball courts and gymnasium
- Racquetball Court Wall Repair
- Replacement of interior floors
- Painting the racquetball and gymnasium walls
- New window treatments
Funds for these repairs will come from the Department of Parks and Recreation’s capital improvement budget and a grant from the Washington State Department of Commerce. This project is expected to be completed in 6-8 months.
