Is the artist in you seeking a challenge? If you answered yes, we have an opportunity for you! We are looking for an artist to design a logo for the 40th Annual 4th of July Run. Submissions are due by Tuesday, March 1. For guidelines, logos from past events and additional information, please visit us here.   

Our annual Ashland Community Bike Swap is fast approaching. Okay, it’s two months away (Sat, Apr 16), but there is something you can do now… Donate your unwanted bike or equipment! Did you know any donations are tax-deductible? From now until April 12 we are accepting donated bikes and bike equipment in good working condition. Drop yours off at Ashland Fire Station #1 at 455 Siskiyou Blvd or, for a pick-up, call 541.488.5340. Every donation means more bike safety classes for our community. Learn more at here.

The first annual Siskiyou de Mayo: A World Music Festival, scheduled for May 14, 2016, will take place in Lithia Park at the Butler Bandshell, and celebrate multiculturalism with international music and dance! Local acts will include Zimbabwean Marimba performances, Middle-Eastern belly dancing, Afro-Cuban fusion, salsa dancing and much more! We hope to see you there… more info here.

Registration for our Winter/Spring programs is underway! View all of our Winter/Spring programs in the digital Rec Guide at here! Our easy-to-use digital guide has direct registration links for ALL classes that require registration.

Ashland Rotary Centennial Ice Rink… The outdoor rink, located at 95 Winburn Way in Lithia Park, will be open through the end of Feb. Skate rentals accommodate toddler size 9 up to men’s size 15. Please come prepared to skate, as changing rooms are not available. The rink offers skate trainers for select sessions… available at no charge. For more information on prices, schedules, lessons, programming, hockey, scholarships and all we have to offer you, visit us here, call the ice rink directly at 541.488.9189, or call the APRC office at 541.488.5340. 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 the ice… “Let’s skate!”
