Sellwood Community CenterWhat’s to Love: Established in 1920, The Sellwood Community Center remains an important fixture in the neighborhood.  While a bit worse for wear, fans of Sellwood’s small-town-feel will ultimately enjoy the space.  The Center offers a plethora of programs throughout the year and a day camp program in the summer.  This small space has plenty to offer!

Sellwood Community CenterCheck-out their website (link below) for more information about their programs.  We just happened to drop-in to their “Messy Art” class, which was reasonably priced!  The folks running the class were excellent with the kids and setup various project stations.

Messy Art at Sellwood Community CenterThere is a brand new (albeit small) playstructure outside the center that is perfect for toddlers and/or small children.  Inside, you’ll find a nice air hockey table, bumper pool and ping pong.  It’s free to play!  There are special open-playtime hours where they open the gymnasium for free play.  This is a good time to let the kids cut loose a bit.  The staff members are friendly, and you’ll enjoy the neighborly feel of this place.
