In an assessment of Seattle Parks and Recreation Department Community Centers done by Kathleen Conner in 2008, the author wrote of the Hiawatha Community Center: "The Hiawatha PF and CC were identified as projects in the 1908 Olmsted Brothers Supplemental Plan. The two story building has a brick and terra cotta facade, and large windows on the east and west sides of the building. There is a gym, multi-purpose rooms, teen room, game room, exercise room, and kitchen. Parking is available on-site, and the center is on a bus line." (See Kathleen Conner, Seattle Parks and Recreation Community Centers Condition Assessment Screening March 8, 2008 Final,p. 19.)

A gymnasium was added to the lower floor of the Hiawatha Community Center in 1949 in the course of a larger renovation effort.
