Rainier Beach Community Center is located near the southern border of Seattle in one of the most diverse communities in the country.

The community center  and pool were remodeled in 2013. Certified as LEED Gold for its sustainable environmental design, the modern 46,500-square-foot building has one story and features natural lighting through its many windows. The reception/front desk area handles all community center and pool transactions. The outdoor space features metal benches and wood seats, permanent chess boards on some of the tables and a children's play area. On the south side of the building community groups use a public plaza to host public events throughout the year. Nearby are a library, South Shore School and a light rail station.

The center offers a full slate of recreation programs for participants from toddler age to seniors. Among the activities are free tax preparation help through United Way; a community Pancake Breakfast at the Beach; spring egg hunt; toddler gym; preschool; before- and after-school care; summer day camp; sports; and a lively mix of music, dance, and arts.
