In addition, all fall programs will take place outside or virtually. We want to be able to communicate with you effectively and email is the best way to do so, especially with virtual programming and being able to send you the link to access your class!

These steps will help with a smooth registration process and ensure that we have all of your necessary information.

We look forward to seeing you virtually, or outside, this fall!

We are in need of volunteers and there many ways for you to get involved!

• Work independently or join a small group of volunteers to help beautify and care for our parks

• Or maybe at this time you are more interested in helping fellow community members during COVID-19? APRC and the City of Ashland partner with Adopt a Neighbor Ashland to pair volunteers with their more high-risk neighbors for shopping and errands. Visit adoptneighbor.org  to volunteer!

• In addition, our Senior Services Division has partner agencies that are seeking volunteers to help deliver food to seniors and provide rides to medical appointments.

All of these volunteer opportunities are flexible, and some meet critical needs during the pandemic. If you are interested, please contact Sulaiman Shelton, Volunteer Coordinator for APRC at 541.552.2264 or sulaiman.shelton@ashland.or.us. Volunteer with us, “It’s the Natural thing to Do!”

Ashland Parks And Recreation

The City of Ashland Parks & Recreation (APR) Department was established to provide recreational opportunities to improve the quality of life for area residents and visitors. Our goals are to strengthen the community fabric and sense of place for youth, adult, and visitor populations; to promote health and wellness; to foster human development; to increase cultural unity and to protect our valuable natural resources. APR meets these goals through preserving, maintaining, and enhancing our recreational facilities, parks, and open spaces while also coordinating engaging programs, classes, public events, and festivals.
