In addition to this, effective July 20, we are updating our current Phase 2 rentals procedures and will limit rentals to those who both live in the State of Oregon and who will have participants that reside within the State of Oregon.

Please be aware that all rentals and other offerings by Willamalane Park and Recreation District will be modified, limited in capacity, and are subject to availability or closures. We reserve the right to cancel any reservations if patrons do not abide by applicable health and safety requirements.
