Construction in Crossroads Park
The Bellevue Youth Performing Arts Theatre construction project, which began in May 2013, should complete by the fall of 2014.
- Crossroads Community Center will remain open during most of the construction. Community Center parking will be detoured to the closest lot - the north parking lot at 15801 NE 15th Street.
- Some walking paths through the park will be impacted and detoured.
As the construction proceeds, we will work to keep you updated on our progress and changes that may impact your visit to Crossroads Community Center and Park. View more details and BYT construction web page.
Crossroads Community Center is an international gathering place where participants reflect diversity. Over 64 languages are spoken here. Crossroads offers programs for all ages in sports, fitness, arts and enrichment. Crossroads is an important element in Bellevue's Family, Youth and Teen Services program.
The community center, which opened in 1981, specializes in recreation and social services for at-risk youth. The center has grown in focus to include:
- recreation and human service programs for preschool, elementary-age youth and families from the increasingly diverse neighborhood;
- comprehensive recreational, educational and human services programs and activities; and
- referral for human services, from refugee services to legal assistance programs.
The building has been expanded to offer additional programs, as well as meeting space for the community. The renovated space includes:
- A large multi-use room with an attached warming kitchen that can seat up to 120 people
- Four smaller multi-use programming spaces as well as a conference room
- Hallways to improve circulation
- Increased storage.
