The 6,500 square foot Teen Center is located adjacent to an existing Senior Center in downtown Kirkland’s Peter Kirk Park. The facility was designed with input from a youth advisory committee, and seeks to represent the dynamic, high-energy, hip character of this group. The variety of spaces and functions was planned to appeal to the widest range of youth interests possible. Programmed spaces include a teen-run café, multi-purpose room with performance stage, TV lounge, technology center, art studio, dark room, digital recording studio, and administrative offices.
