Project Updates & Schedule

Even before voters approved the successful $100 million bond measure passed in November 2008, Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District was hard at work identifying projects it could undertake to better serve visitors.

District managers knew voters wanted to preserve more natural areas, develop new trails and trail connections, and upgrade or expand parks and recreational facilities across the district. THPRD voters were asked to identify their needs and desires.

Their final list of projects is substantial. Some are large, like building expansions, and some are small, like installing swing sets. But all of the projects – no matter the extent of the work – are important. Today, dozens have been completed, and dozens more are in progress and in the planning stages. The list on this page identifies the currently completed projects by type. For more information about each project, open its link.

Have a Look!

Use the list below to see more about each completed project, such as master plans, drawings, public meeting notes and contact information. To inform voters about all projects, THPRD chose to list each one separately, so please note that different categories of work can be scheduled in the same park or facility. For instance, projects for the Aloha Swim Center fall into three categories - building expansion and improvements, facility rehabilitation, and maintenance replacements.

Description of Project Categories

  • Park additions – Parks are important to neighborhoods. They have a value beyond just play. Parks build community, provide a variety of recreational opportunities, keep people healthy, and can even increase property values. To give all users throughout the District opportunities to enjoy a local park, funds from the bond have been directed to purchasing land for new parks as well as updating and maintaining existing parks.
  • Preserving natural areas is ultimately good for people. Healthy natural areas maintain water quality and provide homes for salmon and other wildlife. THPRD is restoring natural areas by removing invasive weeds that can damage waterways and crowd out native trees and flowering plants that are friendly to local birds and critters. By acquiring natural areas, we also keep nature close to where people live.
  • Trails connect neighborhoods, people and nature. Expanding trails and adding new trail connections not only gives people an alternative to getting around, it creates a parks system that truly serves everyone in the community. Being able to walk or cycle to parks or other neighborhoods not only can be faster, it can be fun and healthy, and give everyone more access to nature.
  • Athletic fields were one of the elements that district voters identified as a need when THPRD was preparing the bond measure. As a result, they are being built in targeted areas across the district.
  • Building expansions are needed as neighborhoods grow and building use increases. By expanding existing facilities, THPRD is able to accommodate new visitors and provide new services for people in all age groups.
  • Facility rehabilitation – The safety of our visitors is one of THPRD's highest concerns. That's why passage of the 2008 bond measure was so important - it allowed the district to attend to important maintenance work and structural upgrades at a number of facilities. Seismic upgrades have been installed at several buildings to bring them up to current earthquake standards.
  • Maintenance replacements - Voters in the district know it's important to take care of their facilities. Good maintenance just makes good sense. Just like taking care of your home, the upkeep of the district's pools, workout centers and other buildings extends their useful life, avoids more costly repairs or replacements, ensures safely, avoids unnecessary closures, keeps them operating efficiently, and helps users get more for their money.
