Locations & Directions

Our Address

4649 Sunnyside Avenue North
Suite 140
Seattle, WA 98103


The Wallingford Community Senior Center is located on the first floor of the Good Shepherd Center, on the corner of N 50 St and Sunnyside Ave. You’ll find the GSC slightly hidden behind hedges on the sidewalk. There is an accessible ramp and a small set of stairs that will take you down to the first level. Once inside, turn right and go to the end of the hall: then you’ll see us!


There is onsite parking at the Good Shepherd Center as well as limited street parking on Sunnyside Ave. Only the first available lot in the GSC’s traffic loop, left of the building upon entrance, is available for our visitors to park in. Please note that the GSC is shared by many groups, including a school. They start at 9:15 am and end at 3 pm; parking can be particularly scarce around at these times.

WCSC’s transportation assistance service to-and-from the Good Shepherd Center is paused indefinitely. We will alert our community via our email newsletter when this service will start again.
