Garden Home Recreation Center

Garden Home was built in 1912 and originally constructed as a school. In fact, the school's original 1912 bell is still located at the center. In 1986, THPRD purchased the building (which had undergone many changes over the years) and gave it the present name.

Our mission is to provide recreational programs and classes of the highest quality that are affordable, accessible and safe. The classes and programs we offer are intended to enrich your life, stimulate your mind, incorporate fun and creativity, and develop confidence, self-worth, health and well-being.

The center is an access point to the historic Oregon Electric Railroad section of the Fanno Creek Trail. Parking is available.
