Stay Safe during the Heat
PP&R classes, activities, rentals, and sports events may be canceled due to inclement weather, such as ice, snow, or extreme heat. Call 503-823-2533 or visit portland.gov/parks/closures for the most current information. Some recreation programs may run as conditions and staff availability allow. Safety is a major factor in determining operations at each PP&R facility.

Access Pass - Reduced Pricing
Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) believes recreation is for everyone. We know that the price of programs and activities prevents some community members from being able to participate. Thanks to the Parks Local Option Levy (Parks Levy) we can offer new payment options for people who live within the City of Portland. City of Portland residents can register for a free Access Pass to receive an ongoing discount of 25, 50, 75, or 90% based on financial need. The pass is valid for 12 months from the date of enrollment. No proof of income is required.

The building is an historic firehouse built in 1928. PP&R assumed ownership of the firehouse in 1958 and converted it into a community center. When the center was threatened with closure in 2003 as a result of City budget shortfalls, a group of dedicated community volunteers formed the Friends of the Woodstock Community Center (FWCC) to raise funds, and to recruit and coordinate volunteers who contribute thousands of hours each year helping with landscape maintenance, building upkeep, classes, and community events.
