Tennis Courts, Dog Parks, & Skate Parks to Open – Small Number of Outdoor Camps Begin in July
May 20, 2020: Effective Saturday, May 23, people will again be able to enjoy THPRD outdoor tennis courts, dog parks, and skate parks. These amenities are opening sooner than originally anticipated based on state guidelines released last week by the Governor’s Office. There will be physical distancing requirements and participants will be limited to groups of 10 people at a time, per Oregon rules currently in effect.
All THPRD parks and trails are open for public use but other park amenities such as basketball courts, playgrounds, athletic fields, and picnic shelters, remain closed. For an updated list of closures, please visit www.thprd.org.
Update on Summer Programming
- Youth Summer Camps will be Announced June 1st: THPRD will begin offering weekly summer camps starting Monday, July 6. Summer camp options will be posted to the district’s website on Monday, June 1.
- Summer Camps Will Start Small: Due to compliance with state rules and THPRD’s current limited operational capacity, the district will begin summer programming by focusing on summer camps for school-age youth. Each camp group will be limited to 10 participants with approximately 30 total camp options per week.
- Camps Will be Hosted Outdoors: Based on state guidelines, the first few weeks of summer camp offerings will be centrally based at two locations: the HMT Campus and Mountain View Champions Park. Space will be limited, with THPRD able to accommodate around 300 campers per week initially.
- In-District Registration: In-district registration will begin Saturday, June 13, at 8 am. Out-of-district registration will begin Monday, June 15, at 8 am. The best way to register is on-line at www.thprd.org. The district will offer in-person registration assistance, a Welcome Center/Centro de Bienvenida at the HMT Campus starting at 7:30 am on June 13. More details will be announced soon.
The best place to stay up-to-date is the district’s website. As the summer progresses, THPRD hopes to offer more programming and will announce additional youth summer camps or possibly adult programming/classes as our capacity grows. Please visit our Virtual Rec Center on the district’s website for FREE online opportunities.
