Ashland Parks & Recreation Commission

Our Autumn PlayGuide, formerly the Rec Guide, is out and we are sporting a new look! The NEW PlayGuide is now called the “Community PlayGuide… What to Do!” We hope you have the opportunity to check it out at AshlandParksandRec.org. Our easy-to-use digital PlayGuide has direct registration links for ALL classes that require registration. If you didn’t receive a PlayGuide in the mail and you would like to receive a hard copy of the Autumn guide, or future editions, please complete our online request form at ashland.or.us/MailMyGuide or call us at 541.488.5340. We would also be happy to add you to our email notification list. If you are interested in letting the community know about your business, contact dorinda.cottle@ashland.or.us to talk about a display ad.

The Ashland Rotary Centennial Ice Rink will open for the 2017-2018 season on Wednesday, November 15. The rink is located in Lithia Park at 95 Winburn Way, at the corner of Nutley St. More info at ashland.or.us/IceRink. We hope you can experience one of the most magical places in Ashland… that little outdoor rink in beautiful Lithia Park, where the air is fresh, the white lights are twinkling and the music blends with the sounds of nature and blades on ice… Let’s skate!” (If you would like to advertise your business at the rink, contact Lonny Flora at lonny.flora@ashland.or.us by Oct 10.)
