On Sunday afternoon, about 200 kids poured into the new gym located at 5313 Shilshole Avenue NW just South of the busy intersection of Market and 24th Street. The 2 hour open house–including open gym time, hamburgers and hotdogs–couldn’t have been more welcome or better attended. Parents lined up to sign their kids up for classes–recession be damned! At least they don’t have to drive to Lake City from Ballard for evening gymnastics classes!
The new gym has very high ceilings and is open and spacious. And it doesn’t smell like the old gyms, at least not yet! It has two trampolines, a tumble track and an air track. Of course there’s the foam pit for end of class fun. The parent’s bleachers are just as small as the old place, so be prepared to stand. If you go, watch the turn from Shilshole Ave. It’s hard to see at first.
