City of Oakland | Rainbow Recreation Center
Located in Oakland’s Seminary District, the Rainbow Recreation Center was originally built in 1980 and was in need of updating and expansion to better serve the local community. The existing 9,985 square foot building includes a gymnasium, kitchen and pantry, and a large multipurpose room. The renovation, which is not complete, added 4,600 square feet of space, including a new workout room, daycare facility, and computer lab, while also expanding the existing kitchen and multipurpose room.
The community center sits on a 1.85 acre park which consists of a tennis court, basketball courts, a skateboarding area, and play structures and open space. The renovation project also includes converting the under-utilized tennis courts into a much sought-after turf soccer field, introduction of an edible educational garden, and installation of an outdoor exercise area.
