About The Les Gove Gymnasium
The gymnasium was opened in October 2011 at the Les Gove Community Campus in conjunction with the King County Boys and Girls Club. The building was designed by BLRB Architects, a Tacoma based architectural firm and was built by general contractor Christensen Inc.
As part of the project, a public art piece was commissioned. The two panel 13' x 13' painted steel artwork by artist Bruce Myers is a representation of the Auburn Valley topography. Flanking each side of the climbing wall, this most recent addition to the City's Public Art Collection, references the elevation of landscape as the climbers literally climb upward. The seating boulders surrounding the wall are a physical reminder of the natural setting in which the sport of climbing originated.
The new activity center and gymnasium complements the 21-acre recreational and educational Les Gove Community Campus that serves the entire community. The cluster of amenities includes a library, Senior Activity Center, White River Valley Museum, and Multipurpose Building. The new Community Center & Event Center is now open and available for facility rentals, classes, and so much more! The campus also includes the popular Rotary Spray Park, public art, bocce courts, a softball field and the new award-winning 32,000 sq. ft. Discovery Playground. A half-mile paved trail encircles an attractive bermed and treed lined area.
