Strategic Partnership

North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District and North Clackamas School District

In March 2018, North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District and North Clackamas School District finalized and closed on a Strategic Partnership agreement that will provide new amenities and community spaces to meet the needs of the residents across both districts. This partnership included the exchange of NCPRD-owned Hood View Park in Happy Valley for NCSD’s Concord Elementary School building in Oak Grove, Wichita Elementary School in Milwaukie, Clackamas Elementary School in unincorporated Clackamas, and cash for the balance of Hood View Park.

The partnership between the parks district and school district gives both entities needed resources to better serve our communities. Benefits of the partnership include:

  • Provides School District with the needed sports fields for the planned development of the new high school, converted from Rock Creek Middle School
  • Hood View Park stays in the community to provide students with athletic fields, and will continue to serve as a venue for sports programming and league rentals during non-school use times
  • Decentralizes the Park District’s capital currently held in Hood View Park and frees up annual revenue to allow for more investment in underserved areas throughout the District
  • Opportunity for Concord Elementary School, Wichita Elementary School and Clackamas Elementary School to be revitalized and repurposed for public uses

North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District is dedicated to a thorough, inclusive and transparent public engagement process for the development of new parks and facilities.

Community input helped inform a new park design planned for the Concord property, which will be situated along the new Oak Lodge Library and the Concord building. Construction began winter 2023, and the project is expected to be completed by spring 2025. Learn more about the project.
