“A place to be me”: Eastside Community Center Open House Event

Above: one attendee presents her message about why she supports the Eastside Community Center. 

Members of the Tacoma community gathered on May 18th, 2016 to explore the latest schematic designs for the up and coming Eastside Community Center. The open house event was attended by approximately 80 people, which was a great turnout for such an important community event.

Below: Students presented information to attendees, showing their care and dedication to the project.

In the spirit of fun, Metro Parks provided props for attendees to take selfies. Some of these props included various musical instruments and even some snorkeling gear!

Check out these fun photos below.

We encourage all Tacoma community members to take a selfie with your favorite props and post it to your own social media, using the hashtag #ImagineEastside.
