Federal Way Community Center to open as cooling center amid high weekend temperatures

Cooling center open during regular business hours from Saturday, June 26 through Tuesday, June 29.

With record-high temperatures in the forecast this weekend, the Federal Way Community Center is opening as a cooling center for residents in need.

The Federal Way Community Center, located at 876 S. 333rd Street, will be open as a cooling shelter during regular business hours from Saturday, June 26, through Tuesday, June 29, said Federal Way Parks Director John Hutton.

The community center is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday; and 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.

The cooling center is free and open to all individuals needing an escape from the heat. Pets are not allowed.

If an individual would like to swim, workout or use another facility amenity, day passes are available for $5 (ages 3-11), $6 (ages 12-17 or ages 62+) and $8 (ages 18-61).

Temperatures in King County are expected to climb to an expected high of 89 degrees on Friday. Saturday and Sunday both have highs around 97 degrees, which would break the Seattle-Tacoma area record of 92 and 95 degrees, respectively.

The Federal Way Parks Department will open the spray park at Town Square Park this weekend to make sure families have a fun place to stay cool.
