THPRD Announces More Openings
All playground equipment, outdoor exercise equipment, and basketball courts (Basketball is limited to shooting hoops. Games and all contact sports are still prohibited in Phase 1.) We respectfully ask for the public’s patience as we work on updating signage this week at our more than 100 park sites. We will be returning swings, removing barriers and caution tape, and updating temporary rules signs at all park sites over the next week or so.
Tualatin Hills Aquatic Center and Conestoga Recreation & Aquatic Center Pools to Open at the beginning of October
Another big announcement from the Oregon Health Authority on Friday was allowing pools to open during Phase 1, with some limitations in place. Staff are working on plans to reopen the pools at the Aquatic Center and Conestoga by the beginning of October. The district needs a couple of weeks to hire and train aquatics staff as well as prepare the pools for opening.
Both pools are anticipated to offer scheduled water fitness opportunities and reservations for lap swim. To reserve your spot, visit www.thprd.org/portal. THPRD’s remaining pools and splash pads will be closed for the remainder of 2020.
Status of other THPRD Facilities & Activities:
Thanks to a grant award from Washington County, as part of the federal CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Funds, THPRD will be able to bring back FREE mobile recreation programs. We are also working on late summer and fall community events that can be held consistent with physical distancing guidelines.
THPRD will continue to roll out the reopening of additional facilities as district operations allow.
Facilities Expected to Open Later this Fall Include: Tualatin Hills Nature Center; THPRD is working on plans to offer out of school time care and preschool care options for families.
Facilities Expected to Open in 2021 Include: Garden Home Recreation Center, Elsie Stuhr Center and additional swim center locations (Aloha, Beaverton, Harman and Sunset). Garden Home Community Library and private tenants are currently operating at Garden Home, and the Meals on Wheels People program continues to prepare meals at the Elsie Stuhr Center for distribution to community members.
