Patrons can visit us in-person at this temporary location or call 253-841-5457. We estimate that the Recreation Center will open in late September or early October timeframe. We appreciate the community’s support and patience while we make these important repairs to the Center.
Closure Details: In March of 2021, it was determined that the exterior walls and roof of the Puyallup Recreation Center needed repairs and replacement due to significant damage. If repairs did not move forward, 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-roof racquetball courts and gymnasium
- Repairing racquetball court walls
- Replacement of interior floors
- Painting of racquetball and gym walls
- New window treatments
Funds for these repairs will come from the Parks and Recreation Department Capital Improvement budget and a Washington State Department of Commerce grant. This project is estimated to be completed in 6-8 months.
