River Road Summer Program Guide PDF

The Summer 2016 Program Guide is Here!

Welcome to River Road Park District!

From Superintendent, Dale Weigandt


If you have been a long time user of the District, or this is the first time you have browsed our District program, we would like to welcome you to our Summer Activity Guide.  We invite you to check out all of the exciting opportunities we have planned for the summer.


A huge thank you goes to our District voters, who in 2013 approved an additional operating levy.  The funds from this levy have not only allowed the District to maintain our facilities, but also to continue to provide the level of service and quality recreational programs that enhance the lives of the people we serve.  Our staff works hard to maintain our park, playground, open spaces and park facilities at a high level.



One of our major projects this spring is the launching of REC 1- our new on-line registration software program.  It will make it more convenient for our patrons to register and attend our many offerings here at River Road Park.
The River Road Park Imagination Bus, “Artie” will be in full use five days a week this summer with the generous help of Imagination International Inc. and The Oregon Community Foundation.
Coming this August during the annual maintenance shut down, the Park District will be replacing its 25 year old boiler which is responsible for supplying the building and pool with heat.   We will also be upgrading our main office window to accommodate the REC 1 registration system.


There are many exciting activities to participate in, whether it’s enrolling your child in summer camps or swim lessons, traveling with our 55+ group or just enjoying a comfortable day in the park with a visit to our wading pool. There is something to do for everyone!   We thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you at River Road Park District this summer.
