Sign up for spring classes starting Saturday, March 3
Beginning this year, the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District is conducting a separate registration period for spring classes and programs that starts this Saturday, March 3.
Previously, registration for THPRD's winter and spring classes and programs was done at the same time. Park District officials believe the new way is better for patrons.
"It will be a convenience for parents to be able to register only one month before classes start in April," said Sharon Hoffmeister, superintendent of Aquatics and registration coordinator. "They will have a better idea of what their schedules will be."
Online and phone registration will be open to in-district residents starting at 8 a.m. on the 3rd and go until 6 p.m. that day. It will continue March 4 from noon to 4 p.m. and March 5-9 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Patrons registering by computer for the first time must establish an online account in advance. Those registering by phone simply need to call 503/439-9400 starting March 3.
THPRD will again offer, on a limited basis, Spanish language assistance during phone-in registration for classes and programs. The service will be available March 3.
Class descriptions and schedules, along with registration instructions and forms, are in THPRD's winter/spring 2012 activities guide, which is available online at www.thprd.org. Printed copies of the guide can be picked up at any THPRD center or the Administration Office at 158th and Walker Road.
The printed guide is also available at six Beaverton-area libraries, the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce, Beaverton City Hall, Washington County Visitors Association, and the Beaverton School District Administration Center.
Those registering should have class information, credit card or debit information (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or THPRD gift card), and a valid THPRD residency card. They can sign up only members of their immediate family. Questions can be directed in advance to 503/645-6433.
For residents living outside the Tualatin Hills district, registration will begin Friday, March 9, at 8:30 a.m. Those who have paid an assessment fee ($72 quarterly) may register by Internet, phone, fax, mail or walk-in starting that day.
Formed in 1955, THPRD is the largest special park district in Oregon, spanning about 50 square miles and serving more than 220,000 residents in the greater Beaverton
area. The district provides year-round recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. Offerings include a wide variety of classes and more than 90 park sites with active recreational amenities, 60 miles of trails, eight swim centers, six recreation centers, and 1,400 acres of natural areas. For more information, visit www.thprd.org or call 503/645-6433.
