Is THPRD requiring park/trail visitors to wear face coverings (or masks)?
Park and trail visitors are asked to wear face coverings consistent with state guidance. Visitors are also encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer with them and to be careful to avoid touching surfaces. Per the Governor's direction, if you cannot maintain six-feet of distance from other visitors, please wear a face mask.
The following statewide requirements are in effect and apply to all park visitors, as well as campers, and staff:
Face coverings will be required for all Oregonians ages five and older in indoor public spaces and outdoors when six feet of distance cannot be maintained.
Face coverings will be required even in cases of physical exertion indoors and outdoors when six feet of distance cannot be maintained.
What is the status of the PCC Rock Creek Recreation Facility?
Currently, the PCC Rock Creek Recreation Facility remains closed to THPRD-sponsored activities. The college is working to develop their reopening plans and has not authorized use of the complex until that planning is complete. Although THPRD has an intergovernmental agreement with PCC that guarantees shared use of the facility, we are not currently operating under typical conditions. Both organizations have been in communication and are working toward allowing programmed use of the site. At this time, we do not have an exact date for when the complex will be available for use. In the meantime, THPRD is planning for the opening of additional grass fields at the Howard M. Terpenning Recreation Complex and at Rock Creek Powerlines Park in the event the demand for field time increases.
Are parks or trails overcrowded?
In general, the public is doing a good job complying with physical distancing rules. One of the best things you can do right now is stay local. This is not a time to overload larger community parks. We have had reports of full, or overloaded parking at our larger community park and nature park sites. If a parking lot is FULL, please be responsible and move on to another location. We have nearly 100 park sites to visit in the district and want to encourage people to enjoy their local neighborhood park and trails. To help with physical distancing we have instituted temporary one-way loops on some trails.
What about park, field and trail maintenance during this time?
With the closures and staffing reductions, patrons will see a reduction in service levels in terms of maintenance. We are mowing less. We will be watering less. We are modifying our trash pick-up procedures and focusing on minimizing risk for our staff.
At this time, one thing the public can do to help is to minimize trash in parks. We are asking that if you bring it in, please pack it out. We will still have trash collection but need your help reducing the waste in parks during the closure period.
Will I get a credit or refund for classes or programs I’ve paid for?
Patrons who registered for programs, impacted by the closures, that required a fee through June 14, 2020, have received a refund.
I have a Deluxe or General Pass- can I get a refund?
For patrons with deluxe or general passes, THPRD will refund a prorated amount from March 13, 2020 when THPRD facilities closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, we will not be selling passes for the foreseeable future.
All refunds were sent to patrons by August 15, 2020. Refunds were issued as a virtual gift card and credited on your THPRD account. If you would prefer a to receive a check for the value of the credit, please contact THPRD at 503-645-6433.
What about shelter, fields or facility rentals?
All rentals are cancelled through the closure period and fees will be refunded. THPRD is not accepting any new rentals at this time.
Is THPRD Accepting Financial Aid applications at this time?
Yes! Patrons are welcome to submit their application to email@example.com.
