Starting Monday, Oct. 25, verification of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test will be required to participate in activities, events, fitness programs, performances, or other gatherings in all open indoor recreation facilities.

City staff has developed a safe reopening plan emphasizing public safety. In addition, we are recruiting and hiring recreation division staff to get back to pre-COVID-19 levels to best serve the public.

Currently, community centers require pre-registration or reservations for amenities and programs.

A PerfectMind Account is needed to complete the process of registrations or reservations. If you do not have an account, please sign up online. If you need assistance setting up an account or have questions, please contact recreation staff at the emails and phone number to the left. 

Lunch Program

The Sound Generations Congregate Lunch program will be changing as of Monday Sept 27. Monday through Friday, 11:30 am, “Meals to Go” will be available for in person pick up, by reservation only, with a daily maximum available. Once again a donation of up to $4 for all over 60 years of age and $10 for under 60 will be appreciated, cash and check only.

In order to reserve a lunch please call 425-430-6633. We will create an account for you with Renton Recreation if you don’t already have one, and we will be happy to reserve a lunch for you on a specific date. At this time we will be taking reservations for one week in advance.

When you arrive to pick up your lunch, you will be required to wear a mask to enter our building and complete a COVID screening questionnaire. This is in place to ensure the safety of our patrons and staff. There will also be paperwork for Sound Generations that will need to be filled out, so please give additional time during this first week. We will no longer be offering drive through pick up, so please park accordingly.

This system is new to us, and with daily changes in the COVID situation our operations will be consistently changing. Your understanding is appreciated immensely at this time.

Please note we are unable to accommodate eating of the lunches on site, or special menu requests.
