THPRD is making plans to remove an aging playground from Burntwood Park. This playground, which is about 30 years old, is in a state of disrepair and no longer meets the current safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Longtime employee Keith Watson has been promoted to superintendent of Sports for THPRD. Watson will oversee programming and fiscal management for the Sports Department, coordinate partnerships with the Beaverton School District and affiliated sports leagues; and recruit tournaments and other sporting events.
Within the next six weeks, the park maintenance department will have a contractor remove the hitting wall that sits between the basketball courts adjacent the Harman Swim Center. The wall has been the target of repeated acts of vandalism.
