Welcome to THPRD
Celebrating 60 years of service: 1955-2015
On March 4, 1955 -- 60 years ago today! -- voters approved a tax-supported park district in Beaverton. A successul two-year campaign, spearheaded by Elsie Stuhr (third from left), was instrumental in the successful vote. It wasn't long before ground was broken on the district's first facility, the Beaverton Swim Center.
Spring registration begins this Saturday
Spring registration begins on Saturday, March 7, for district residents. Hundreds of new classes for youth and adults are available, including spring break camps, swim lessons, adult recreation and more.
Effective Jan. 1, several new policies -- including a 10 percent discount for military families -- went into effect.
