East Portland Community Center
East Portland community center is over on 106th near the 205 mall.
I like it for a handful of reasons, but mainly because my kids really liked it. I like the tot play time where the kids get to jump on the trampoline, ride around on toys or in wagons, and play with lots of other toys. It’s super cheap to do one of their drop in activities.
The East Portland Community Center indoor pool area is fun and cheap. For one adult and three kids, I paid $14.75. The pool had life jackets your kids can use, but my kids found them uncomfortable. I highly recommend bringing your own life jackets. You will also want to bring towels, a lock for your locker, flip flops, goggles, floaties and toys.
The large body slide is for riders 48″ and taller. Kids that don’t meet the height requirement can go down in their parent’s lap. A large part of the pool is less than 3 feet deep. Not seen in any of the pictures is the lazy river and a whirlpool kids can go around and around. The hot tub for ages 16 and up. There is a separate pool for swimming laps. It also had a roped off area for playing water basketball. In the shallow area is a slide for toddlers.
They offer lots of classes for kids and adults. My friend’s kid is always taking some class there like basketball or karate. I have heard that their swimming lessons are good. For more info click here.
Their b-day parties are really well done and fun.
