Spring is just around the corner and great things are happening at THPRD!

2019 is off to a great start at your park and recreation district. January saw the Get Fit 2019 Challenge begin, encouraging the community to get up, get moving, and take advantage of all the district has to offer. It’s not to late to sign up – it runs through April 13th and you can win some cool prizes for your commitment to health and wellness.

The THPRD Board of Directors kicked off the New Year with several big ideas. First, the Board announced the district would offer FREE childcare during board meetings to ensure every patron had the opportunity to participate. To reserve your spot call 503.619.3861 or email ddixon@thprd.org.

The Board also announced a commitment to support affordable housing development in next year’s budget. The Board’s direction was clear, they want to see collaboration and support for regional affordable housing efforts.

The district announced in January it was the first organization to join the City of Beaverton’s safe parking program. This program will support people living out of vehicles, with safe locations to temporarily park their vehicles, while they work with a case manager to transition to stable housing.

There are lots of innovative programs being offered throughout the district. Conestoga Recreation and Aquatic Center started a Spanish Immersion pre-school. Sunset Swim Center launched a Self Defense Series in February. And the Tualatin Hills Nature Center has a full catalogue of environmental education programs for kids and adults.

Hard to believe but… Spring Registration is just around the corner – starting on March 2. Check out the district’s Activity Guide to pick your latest round of swim, fitness, dance, or sports offerings.
