River Road Program Guide

The Winter & Spring 2020 Program Guide is Here!

Welcome to River Road Park District!




With heavy hearts, we are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend and colleague, Tannah Graham.  Tannah had been fighting a brave battle to overcome a respiratory illness that took her young life.  Our immediate thoughts and prayers go out to Tannah’s family, and to all the lives she endeared and touched. 


Tannah was a doting mother, rock and matriarch to her family.  She had an exuberant, warm and giving nature.  One of her most admirable qualities was her kind heart.  She often was guilty of bestowing tiny acts of kindness and compassion without hesitation, always humble and unassuming.


As her co-workers, we all feel a deep personal loss.  Tannah roamed the halls and classrooms of the District from a young age through adulthood.  Many of us watched her grow up within these walls. This was her home. The District and the North Eugene community has lost a remarkable human being.   


Fly high, Tannah Grace, we will miss you…




River Road Park District Closure Update



First and foremost, we would like to say how much we miss seeing each and every one of you. Children attending our early childhood programs. Gymnasts at Prairie Hall. Adults in our water exercise, yoga, and tai chi classes. Attendees on our 55+ day trips. This is an extraordinarily challenging time, and we would like to thank all of you for your continued support.

Both physical and mental exercise are important in our everyday lives. Our job is to help provide you with opportunities to stay healthy and fit. In these trying times, please remember that you can still come and use our open spaces at Emerald Park. The playground and skate park are closed, but all open spaces can continue to be used with proper social distancing.

In addition, we will continue to provide programming to our Youtube page. Programs may include children’s art activities, children’s story time, adult fitness routines and more. To access these programs, please use the link below.


Following guidelines set by Governor Brown and Executive Order Number 20-12, we have extended all facility closures and programming cancellations beyond our original date of April 1st. We will continue to monitor the situation, and will notify all patrons as soon as we are able to reopen.

The District’s Business office will remain open Monday – Friday from 8am – 4pm. To contact us with questions, please call 541-688-4052, or email us: info@rrpark.org.

Thank you again to everyone who participates in our programming. We look forward to welcoming you back to our facilities as soon as possible, and wish you all health and happiness until then.

River Road Park & Recreation District



The District’s philosophy has always been to provide programming and services to patrons of all ages and abilities. To continue to provide during these trying times, River Road Park & Recreation District has partnered with our fellow park & recreation cohorts (Willamalane, City of Eugene, and the Eugene YMCA) to help each other out. Please feel free to read the joint press release attached for more information about children’s activities, online exercise routines, and how to enjoy our open spaces in a safe and healthy manner.


(Joint Press Release)


To prepare for our eventual reopening, our staff have been busy at work cleaning and disinfecting all classrooms and equipment. We are also sanding and finishing the inside of the sauna, resurfacing benches in the aquatics facility, waxing floors, and finishing our summer program. In addition, we are planning to repaint the inside of the fitness center (with paint we already have) and fine tune all fitness equipment.

We know that this situation has been difficult on both our patrons and staff, but we want to assure all of you that when we are given the green light to reopen, we will be ready. We thank all of you for your continued support, and look forward to seeing you soon.




River Road Park & Recreation District has elected to cancel classes, programs, and activities at all facilities from March 14th through March 31st. All District facilities will be closed to the public, but our District business office will remain open via phone Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm. Our goal is to reopen on April 1st, but we will continue to monitor the situation, and will reassess and make adjustments as needed.

Please contact our business office at 541-688-4052 to register for any upcoming classes, programs, trips, activities, or if you have any further questions. Registration dates are as follows:

In District - Monday, March 16th

As always, we thank you for your continued support.

River Road Park & Recreation District




In line with the recommendation from Governor Brown regarding the safety of public gatherings and social distancing, River Road Park & Recreation District is taking the following action:

We will be closing all facilities to the public effective at the end of business day March 13th.  All classes and programs will be cancelled until further notice.


We understand that many of you are currently enrolled in our winter programs and have already re-enrolled for our spring programs.  Once we have determined the date in which we will reopen, credit or refund adjustments to your account will be made accordingly.


Registration for spring classes and programs will still be available.  To register for a class or program, please contact our business office at 541-688-4052.  In District patrons can register beginning on Monday, March 16th, and Out of District patrons can register beginning on Tuesday, March 17th.  Swim lesson registration will begin on March 20th.


We are evaluating our long term plan and will continue to assess the situation and provide updates as information becomes available.  Current updates and information will be posted to our website, www.rrpark.org

During the break, we encourage everyone in our community to follow recommended practices by avoiding large gatherings, washing hands frequently, and covering mouths when coughing or sneezing. Those experiencing fever, flu or cold symptoms should stay at home until well after they are symptom-free without the use of medication. If you are concerned about symptoms, please consult with your healthcare provider.


The situation regarding COVID-19 is frequently changing, and everyone at River Road Park & Recreation District is committed to your safety and the safety of our employees, volunteers, and partners.  We’re going to do everything we can to keep our community as healthy as possible.


We hope that this closure will help combat the spread of the coronavirus, and look forward to returning to our regularly scheduled hours and programs as soon as possible.


As always, we thank you for your continued support.
