More About the Move
 As everyone has been watching the Lynnwood Recreation Center renovation, many don’t know that this
project has long been planned as Phase One of Two — the second phase being the development of a
second building adjacent to the Rec Center intended to house the Senior Center. The hope is to one day
gain the approvals and funds to move ahead with the building. In the meantime, the North Administration
Building (NAB) is a City-owned facility located just across the parking lot from the Recreation Center. Due
to City-wide budget cuts, the Senior Center remaining in the current leased location is unfeasible. We
are going ahead with long-awaited plans, just a little earlier than expected. The Senior Center is simply
moving ahead of schedule, and this is exciting!

 There are many benefits to moving the Senior Center to Lynnwood City Campus. The Center will be on
the bus line, close to City Hall and the library, surrounded by wooded walking trails, and best of all, able to
make use of the excellent amenities at the Recreation Center. Besides joining into Water Fitness for Adults
62+, there is access to the new weight room, therapy pool, lazy river, lap pool, sauna, adult hot tub, and
much more. Several Senior Center fitness classes, such as Enhance Fitness and Tai Chi will be held in the
Rec Center’s beautiful new spaces.

Questions and Answers:
1.) What will happen to my class / activity / trip during the Senior Center closure?
  All current activities will run as scheduled through May 31 at the Senior Center’s current location. Most will then take
a break for the month of June, resuming on July 5. The exceptions are Enhance Fitness classes, which will start in their
new and on-going fitness spaces at the Rec Center on June 1. Trips and Outdoor Recreation will continue as scheduled,
leaving from the front doors of the new Senior Center location at the North Administration Building.

2.) What will happen to my class / activity / trip when the Senior Center re-opens?
 Classes and activities will resume on regular schedules at the North Administrative Building beginning July 5. In the
case of any unanticipated changes to a class or activity, those registered will be notified individually by phone.

3.) Can I still come in for coffee?
  Yes! The kitchen, with an adjoining Great Room comparable to the current space, will be open and available for coffee,
treats, reading newspapers, and hanging out with your friends.

4.) Where will I park?
 Parking is available throughout City campus, and disability spaces are planned. Trip parking is behind the Fire Station,
to allow closer spaces for regular day use.

5.) Where do I get more information?
 Please see any Senior Center staff member. You may call the Senior Center front desk at (425) 670-5050. After June 3,
any relevant updates will be recorded on this line, and you may leave a voicemail that will be returned as time permits.
For more calls of a more urgent nature during Senior Center closure, you may call Recreation Center Customer Service at
(425) 670-5732.
