​Eastlake Community Center  offers children of all ages, adults and seniors cultural programs, dance classes (hip-hop, jazz, ballet, African, tap, tumbling, cheer, pom), arts and crafts, pottery, Jujitsu, aerobics and sports as well as a fitness room with state-of-the-art resistance and aerobic machines. The center and its namesake park played a central role in the civil rights movement in Arizona. They were home to many civil rights rallies, visits from civil right leaders and were the starting point of many civil rights marches to the Arizona State Capital. It is host to Annual Juneteenth Celebrations and the Phoenix Arts Commission Civil Rights Memorial.

Eastlake Park History:

"Phoenix Park", as it was called back in the 1890's, was developed by Moses Sherman specifically to give passengers of his tram line a pleasant place to spend time while waiting for the next tram. A tree lined lake covered much of the existing park. In 1914, it was purchased by the city of Phoenix and became Eastlake Park.
Eastlake Park has been the focal point of African American history in Phoenix for much of its existence. Until it outgrew the space, the park was the home of the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration. The park has been home to many civil rights rallies, visits from civil right leaders and the starting point of all civil rights marches to the Capital. It is home to the Annual Juneteenth Celebration and the Phoenix Arts Commission Civil Rights Memorial.

The trolleys no longer run and the lake has been drained, but Eastlake Park lives on as a vital community asset. It is a place where children, teens, adults and seniors from across the valley meet to participate in outstanding cultural programs.

All can enjoy low cost classes in dance (hip-hop, jazz, ballet, African dance, tap, tumbling, cheer, pom), arts and crafts, pottery, Jujitsu and aerobics. Sports programs include basketball; t-ball, coach pitch and kid pitch (sponsored by the Arizona Diamondbacks), flag football (sponsored by the Arizona Cardinals), track, softball wiffleball, kickball, and splatterball, are offered at a minimal fee. Educational classes in computer, cooking, sewing, teen council, tutoring and mentoring are also offered throughout the year. Activity Schedule

Eastlake Park embraces the spirit of Phoenix.
