Welcome to THPRD
Celebrate spring with three great events
Brownies, earn your water badge!
Spring registration now open
Effective Jan. 1, several new policies -- including a 10 percent discount for military families -- went into effect.
THPRD's Summer Camp Guide is now online!
It's that time! THPRD's Summer Camp Guide is now online, with details about the hundreds of full- and half-day camps offered June 15 - Sept. 3.
Registration for these camps, and other summer programs, begins on Saturday, April 18, so take a look and start planning your summer today.
Review of Family Assistance Program complete
The Park District has completed its review of the district’s Family Assistance Program. The following changes were recommended:
- Funding would be discontinued to third-party providers that offer programs through the district.
- Funding would be discontinued to upper competitive affiliated sport league programs (such as classic soccer). Recreational programs offered by those leagues would not be affected.
- The program would be renamed to THPRD Scholarship Program to better reflect its broad accessibility.
Please direct questions or comments about this proposal to Juan Mercado, community outreach coordinator, by April 15, at 503-645-6433. Final recommendations will be presented to THPRD's Board of Directors at the May 4 meeting.
Look for the Rec Mobile during spring break
All week long, March 23-27, the Rec Mobile will visit local apartment complexes and community sites to provide free activities to keep kids active, engaged and having fun throughout the Beaverton School District break.

Celebrating 60 years of service: 1955-2015
On March 4, 1955, 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.
Functional Plan updates now in progress
The park district is drafting functional plans to guide oversight in five key areas.
The Parks Functional Plan and Recreational Programs Functional Plan are currently under review.
Recently, the district hosted an open forum discussion for public input on the drafts of these plans.
