Eastside center primes for Oct. 20 grand opening
On Oct. 20, the $31 million, 55,000-square-foot Eastside Community Center opens to the public. Located at 1721 E. 56th St. on Tacoma’s Eastside, the center will offer a multi-use gymnasium, a social hall, meeting rooms, a culinary kitchen, a weight room and cardio-fitness areas. The anchor attraction of the center, however, will be a pool that offers lap lanes, a diving board, a climbing wall that drops into the pool, a “drop slide” that also splashes into the pool and zip line that resembles a lake-side rope swing. The pool area also includes a toddler area with a spray feature and a hot tub.
