NCPRD Closures and Cancellations
North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District is dedicated to slowing the spread of COVID-19 and protecting the health of patrons, visitors, staff and all persons. In accordance with Governor Kate Brown’s executive order, as well as the Oregon Health Authority and Clackamas County’s orders and advisement, many of our facilities are closed. We’ve also made some changes to our programming, including adding a wide range of virtual options and incorporating extensive safety protocols for in-person classes and activities. Things might look a bit different this year, but we’re dedicated to continuing to provide you with resources and opportunities that help enrich your lives, improve your well-being and keep you connected to the community.
