$32 Million community center brings pool, recording studio, cafe to Tacoma’s East Side
Tacoma’s new Eastside Community Center is so much more than a gym.
There’s the cafe, feet from the front door. The recording studio is down the hallway. And a slide whisks visitors to the lower level, where they find a pool with amenities that rival water parks.
Those features and more transfixed and thrilled visitors to Metro Parks Tacoma’s $32.7 million center on Portland Avenue and East 56th Street when it opened Saturday.
