Magnuson Community Center, originally known as Building 47 or the "recreation building," was designed for training, recreation, and entertainment by base personnel. It was under construction when the United States entered World War II in 1941. Within its walls you would have found a swimming pool for practicing survival techniques, a gymnasium, handball courts, a weight training room, locker rooms, a bowling alley, and a library. In the years following the war, both the naval base and the recreation center underwent many changes. By the time the base was transferred to the City of Seattle, it needed a lot of maintenance. In early 2003, the building underwent significant renovations to the auditorium, gymnasium and ancillary spaces, opening up new facilities to northeast Seattle.
