COVID vaccine call center (253) 649-1412

Tacoma Pierce County Health Department is ready to help answer COVID-19 questions and register eligible people for vaccine events.

The health of our citizens is the highest priority for the City of Fife. The City of Fife has temporarily closed the Fife Community Center for all programming with the exception of church-related rentals and drive-thru senior lunch pick-up. The pool is open to the public, but by reservation for programs only. The Parks, Recreation and Aquatics team is working hard to follow the Governor’s Safe Start plan to reopen. Please see details below for more information on programs and facilities.

Here are more details:

BALL FIELDS: The Dacca Park Athletic Complex ball fields are now open for small group rentals. There are just a few guidelines and restrictions. They are:
• Fields are open for rentals for practices, but not games.
• Players are limited to groups of 5 in separate parts of the field, and should be separated by a buffer zone.
• Health guidelines recommend that players practice good physical distancing of at least 5 feet between players, with no direct contact between players.
• Due to the high demand of fields, rentals are on a first-come, first-served basis

CCS LUNCHES: It is important that seniors don’t lose this valuable nutrition resource during this time. In-person lunches are canceled, but seniors can pick up boxed lunches from CCS at the Fife Community Center, 2111 54th Ave E., between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays.

Credits were issued to user accounts for all canceled programs, events, lessons and rentals.  These user credits will be issued back to all account users via check by the end of the year (12/31/2020). If anyone would like to inquire about a refund, please contact 253-922-7665 or email

DACCA BARN:We are now taking reservations at 25% capacity (31 people) for private rentals that meet the current guidelines during phase 2.
DOG PARK:The off-leash dog park at Dacca remains open. However, parks employees are monitoring the park to ensure it does not get too crowded.

The Fife Aquatic Center is open for lap swim, tot-swim, family swim, and private, semi-private lessons and group lessons. All programming is by reservation only as strict COVID guidelines are being followed.  


The Fife Community Center is currently closed to the public with the exception of Catholic Community Services (CCS) Senior Lunch Program. CCS lunches can be picked up on Wednesday’s and Friday’s from 12-1 at the front door of the Community Center.

If it is, please use only what you need and do not remove them from the facility.
