Ashland Parks & Recreation Commission (APRC)

Did you know The Grove, located at 1195 E Main Street in Ashland, is the new home to the APRC Recreation Division? In March 2016, Recreation staff moved their offices into The Grove and the building became the central APRC headquarters. The Grove is a place where you can register for a program, get a map or gift certificate, reserve an APRC facility or just stop by to say hello! The new central location will offer easy access and plenty of parking. For more info about The Grove or any of our programs or services, call 541.488.5340 or email. Please stop in and see the ‘new face of Recreation!’
