Fanno Creek Service Center
In December 2011, Fanno Creek Service Center (FCSC) opened as the new home to the following Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District departments:
The 90,000 square-foot facility, acquired by THPRD in December 2010, rests on 13+ acres near downtown Beaverton - west of Highway 217 off of Allen Blvd. – near the heart of THPRD's 50-square-mile service territory.
The acquisition of the Fanno Creek Service Center made good on a recommendation in the district's November 2006 Comprehensive Plan to relocate the Maintenance Operations center in order to help the district "more cost-effectively conduct operations and make better use of land at the (Howard M. Terpenning Recreation Complex)."
THPRD's investment in the facility (originally a Frito-Lay processing facility) was estimated at about $8.7 million, including acquisition and construction costs.
In January 2011, THPRD announced a 10-year partnership with Portland Timbers FC (MLS) to lease 6,000 feet of space for the construction of the adidas Timbers Training Center, which will include a new natural-grass field to be used exclusively by the Timbers and a synthetic turf field designated for public use. The project is expected to be completed by summer 2012.
