Temporary Pool Closure

Willamalane Park Swim Center will be closed for maintenance from Monday, April 29 to Friday, May 3, with plans to reopen on Monday, May 6. During this time, most programs (including swim lessons and water fitness classes) will be relocated to Splash.

Splash hours for April 29-May 3

  • Monday-Thursday: 6 a.m.-9 p.m. No waterpark swims.
  • Friday: 6 a.m.-6:30 p.m. (with a waterpark swim from 4:30-6:30 p.m.)
  • Weekend hours and programming will remain the same, including swim lessons and  waterpark swims from 1-5 p.m. 

Please check the April 29-May 3 calendar for detailed class schedules and drop-in times.

During the closure, Willamalane will replace a critical motor in the HVAC system, which requires heavy, specialized equipment. This procedure must be done now to prevent prolonged downtime or damage to the HVAC system. Please be mindful of signs and work areas near the building.

Dorris Ranch Closure

To ensure the health of the historic filbert orchards at Dorris Ranch, Willamalane applies regulated fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides recommended by Oregon State University and the Oregon Department of Agriculture. Willamalane does not use Class 1 (“Danger” label) or Class 2 (‘Warning” label) products when treating the orchards. To receive email notifications for Dorris Ranch closures, sign up here.

  • Dorris Ranch will be closed starting Wednesday, April 24 at 1 p.m., to treat the orchards for Eastern Filbert Blight using Topguard. It is expected to reopen Thursday, April 25, at 9 a.m.
  • The closure includes the park, orchard, trailhead, and part of the Middle Fork Path. This treatment is weather-dependent, and the specific dates may change. Check park signs for updates and more information.

Park Updates and Ice Storm Clean-Up 

The January ice storm heavily impacted Willamalane parks. Some Willamalane parks, natural areas, and paths are closed. For an interactive map of district parks, view the park status map. To report park damage, call (541) 736-4544.

Parks are deemed “open” when partial or full access to the park is possible. Developed areas of open parks, like playgrounds, basketball courts, and paved paths, have been cleared unless noted below. However, debris and marked hazard areas may still be present elsewhere. Please use caution and pay attention to posted signs when visiting parks.

Even with the hard work of Willamalane staff, outside contractors, and volunteer crews, it may be several months before all debris is cleared and all parks are back in full operation.

Notes on Open Parks

  • Dorris Ranch - The graveled paths and natural-surface trail from the main area, through the orchard, and along the river that connects to the Middle Fork Path is open. The oak woodland trail is also open. All other paths and orchard areas are still closed while we assess the best way to handle the extensive damage to the orchards and forested areas.
  • Jasper Meadows Park - Natural areas remain closed.
  • Thurston Hills Natural Area – Upper and Lower Mossy, Basalt Rim, Cascadian Thumb – all HIKING trails are now open. All Mountain Biking Trails are still closed. Park users should proceed with caution and be aware that there is still storm debris around the trails and impacts on the trail bed are still present.

These parks will remain closed:
